County commissioners approve new server purchases, slip repair funding

Guernsey County commissioners authorized the purchase of two computer servers for the county after one failed earlier this month.

“We are currently operating on the back-up server,” said Commissioner Dave Wilson. “And, we need to have a back-up for the server that is currently in operation.”

The two new servers will cost $17,146 with the expense paid from the county building fund as an IT expense, according to Wilson.

Commissioners approved transferring $36,349 to the Guernsey County Highway Department for slip repairs on Eighth Street Road (County Road 33) in the northern portion of the county.

County Engineer Paul Sherry said the funding provided a 20% local match for an Ohio Public Works Commission emergency grant that funded the remaining 80% of the $102,000 project.
