Commissioners Learn New Technology
Unicoi County Commissioners went back to school in a recent work session. They were learning about the new technology upgrades aimed at increasing the efficiency of commission meetings. Their being trained on everything from new ways to keep minutes of commission meetings to the new IPAD voting system which eliminates the need for roll call votes. The system allows for the item coming up for consideration to be read as it also appears on a projection screen located inside the courtroom. Using their IPAD, Commissioners may then choose from several options and enter. All entries appear on the screen even if they abstain or invoke conflict of interest. The nine thousand dollar upgrade includes the purchase of nine IPADíS for the commissioners and could lead to further enhancements later on. New recording devices for audio and video applications and streaming are in the future plans. (bg)
