TREASURE ISLAND – Several Treasure Island city services will be offline due to scheduled maintenance on the network Thursday, Dec. 20, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Among the affected services are:
• Permit and other Building Department processing.
• All city email services.
• All electronic record retrievals.
The City of Treasure Island website will remain online.
IT Director Mark Santos said the work done on the city’s network is not a repair, but rather a reconfiguration.
“Essentially, we’re enhancing our disaster recovery and continuity of operations by installing new server racks,” he said. “What that means is we’re unplugging everything in our communications and data storage center, installing the new racks, then reconnecting everything.”
Santos described the new server racks as water-tight and designed with maximum mobility in mind. Should a severe storm or other disaster force city operations off the island, he said, “we could disconnect, wheel the racks out the door, and resume essential city operations with greater efficiency.”
