The next order of business was a discussion of computer equipment. Cheryl reported that she's getting error messages when she does the water bills. She's waiting for a fax from support to tell her what's necessary. Progressively getting worse. The hardware is outdated. Dan Henry suggests Roger Behrns would be the one to contact with his recommendation for what is needed. This plan needs to be done before the budget is done.
