City councilors are renewing their focus on technology by creating a Municipal Technology and Information Management Committee. “It’s a matter of: What are the tools out there?” said Councilor Margaret Laforest, who is spearheading the initiative. “Do we have what’s most effective to do our jobs?” The committee will consist of five city councilors, with discussions ranging from upgrading councilors’ current technology, to troubleshooting technology issues. In an interview, Laforest said she was looking forward to potentially updating flip phones used by councilors and community police officers, and creating a more centralized document-sharing system. Laforest also hopes the committee would help oversee technology spending and technology updates citywide. Technology “is a hot issue and important for the city, and it’s not going anywhere,” Laforest said.
