The job description was changed to eliminate the duties associated with Emergency Management. Many of the council members stated their opinions that there are too many duties for one person to handle. Jim Cooper has had those duties included in his job description for several years.

The council also had a request from Jim Cooper regarding and upgrade to a server in a “cloud server. “The system would speed the computer useage for Val when she could do her work anywhere,” according to Cooper. Council members exchanged glances and questions. One of the questions was where does the private information go now and where on the cloud would it be? Deb Zimmer motioned to the sky and said, “It would be in a cloud just up there in a cloud.” Members decided more information was needed and was the upgrade worth the cost of $1,495.
