Technology is ever-changing. To help ensure that Isanti County makes an effort to keep up with those changes as best as possible, the Isanti County Board approved its technology replacement policy at its July 3 meeting.
“Essentially, what this policy serves to do is to ensure that technology is replaced in a timely fashion in Isanti County for a couple of different reasons,” said Travis Martilla, Isanti County Network Operations Manager. “It makes sure that people have working equipment for the jobs that they need to do, considering that increasingly a lot of our work is relying on technology. It helps us out from a trouble-shooting standpoint, so we can make sure that if there are issues with any devices it’s not on account of it being too old to function correctly.”
The policy sets forth timelines for the replacement of different types of equipment, such as desktop computers, laptop computers and cell phones. Each department will be given lists of all their equipment and schedules for the scheduled replacement of that equipment, according to Martilla.
