Computer server on last legs

By on December 11, 2010

Elburn—Described as having a band-aid holding it together, the computer server that allows the village to access e-mail and the Internet is on its last legs. The Village Board on Monday voted to approve its replacement.

“We’re at the next time it turns off, it won’t turn back on,” Village Administrator Erin Willrett said. “We patched it, but we’re holding our breath.”

Village President Dave Anderson said the $12,600 expense was neither budgeted nor expected, but the good news is that the transition will be seamless. All the programs are either Microsoft-based or upgraded to be compatible.
