Village to spend $18,000 plus on new IT services

Hammond Village Board trustees revisited the IT discussion at their meeting Monday night, June 11, this time producing a different outcome.

After reviewing proposals from Wipfli and LockNet, trustees approved a proposal from Computer Integration Technologies, Inc. (CIT) to provide IT services to the Village.

Approval is contingent on a review of the contract language by village attorney Tim Scott.

The contract provides for a new server at a one-time cost of $18,604, managed services for a one-time set up fee of $700 then monthly at $245 per month nd managed backup services at $120 per hour.

Trustees approved a proposal from St. Croix Gas to locate a second natural gas regulation station on a 60-by-80 foot parcel of property purchased from Hanson Brother Farms on County Road J. Approval is contingent on review and approval of the CSM. The station will provide added capacity to service the village of Hammond. Final approval is contingent on confirming utility usage of property zoned R1 residential.
