The Systems Administration department oversees all of the city's design, implementation, and maintenance of any technological needs. This includes a robust computer network and all devices that connect to it such as, Computers, Laptops, Tablets, Phones, Cameras, Wi-Fi Radios, SCADA utility controls, and Emergency Vehicle Mobile Data Computers, just to name a few.
We also work closely with the Gem County Sheriff's Dispatch Center to maintain a next generation Mobile Data Computer system that includes over 50 emergency vehicles county wide. Each vehicle has dedicated broadband connectivity which allows for responders to interact directly with the dispatch center on calls for service; decreasing response times and improving efficiency. Each vehicle is also equipped with interactive mapping and Automatic Vehicle Locators for asset management.
Our city is connected through a sophisticated fiber optic network which we designed, installed, and maintained all with in-house resources and expertise. We strive to stay on the cutting edge of technology and lead our city into the next century.
