Probation reviews and evaluations

KM & JP will work together to get these done.


Old public color printer & printer issues

Ask County IT to look at the old public color printer to see if it is usable. We need a better color printer for staff. Kathy's printer is the only working color one and it's not always working well. Tara's printer doesn't work well in color or b/w. Because patrons don't always realize they have chosen to print in color and don't want to pay, we need to investigate something like the old vendaprint system. The current b/w public printer is not the best one for public use. The toner is expensive and quickly used up. Susan mentioned County IT's idea of having a service contract on printers. Tara has ordered a color printer/scanner/copier/fax for her desk. Josh had mentioned in the past that if patrons want to print in color that staff will save their document to a jump drive, then print from the color printer for them, so that they pay for their color copy. BJM emailed CountyIT 9/23/09 to switch the Brother printer with (Deb's area) the HP.
