Osage Beach will spend a large chunk of money on technology upgrades. The Board of Aldermen approved a $136,000 expenditure for a new storage and backup system. It consolidates and eliminates existing systems and creates on and off-site backups of the city’s computer records. It also brings the city into compliance with state guidelines on backup capabilities. The new system will fully automate the backup process and store data at the Lee C. Fine airport site. Assistant City Manager Mike Welty says they’ve already taken steps to secure the system, which will be accessible remotely.
In other news, the board’s expected to consider ordinances dealing with open burning and a prescription drug monitoring program at their next meeting.
