Council to consider short-term contract for IT needs

By From page A3 | January 19, 2014

SUISUN CITY — The City Council next week will look to approve an $18,000 contract for the maintenance of information technology services to the Police Department.

The resolution would authorize a six-month contract with Cohero, a company that offers an integrated law enforcement management system. Police Sgt. Andrew White, while employed by Suisun City, helped the city IT staff maintain such items for the department. He also developed Police Department-specific applications that saved money, the agenda noted.

White has left the department and is now employed by Cohero. He’s sold the rights to his programs to Cohero. While the city can use them at no cost, there are fees for application support and maintenance.

The staff report suggests a short-term approach to meet the IT needs of the Police Department while assessing options and alternatives for the long term.

If approved, $11,000 would be moved from the organizational contingency fund and $7,000 from Police Department payroll savings.

Also on the agenda is a public hearing concerning the General Plan Update Special Area Goals and Policies. The land involved is 355 acres owned by Union Creek Holdings. Property is located between Petersen Road on the north, a vacant parcel of about 180 acres on the east, Highway 12 and the Susiun Marsh on the south and Walters Road on the west.

The meeting starts at 7 p.m. Tuesday at 701 Civic Center Blvd. The complete agenda can be found at www.suisun.com.
