Otis Technology Committee

Minutes for Meeting of

March 19, 2018

Otis Town Hall Conference Room


Meeting called to order at 6:13 pm in the Town Hall Conference Room, is being recorded, and a quorum is present.


Present:  Bill Hiller, George Mabee, Laurie Flower, Larry Gould, and Frank Tolopko



Approval of Meeting Minutes:  The February 21, 2018 Technology meeting minutes were unanimously approved with changes.


Capitol Request: It was decided that we could absorb what we were going to propose for capital expenses into our budget


Printer: It was decided to purchase a used Ricoh MPC3004EX for accounting and move accounting printer over to PD as theirs no longer works and is to old to invest in fixing. It was also decided not to purchase a maintenance contract and to also cancel existing contracts for the other printers we have.


Broadband Updates:  Fiber and MSTs have been installed along Pine Road and Kibbe Road. The Hut at the East Otis Fire House is fully operational and weather permitting we hope to start lighting up customers in early April. Verizon is still an issue and we have not gotten any other applications approved to date.


Website Upgrades:  Lyn has had some minor problems with some of the plugins when there are automatic upgrades to the new website which have been corrected.  Everyone agreed Bobby’s response time to problems has been exceptional.



The meeting was unanimously adjourned at 7:00 pm.


Respectfully submitted,

Bill Hiller
