The Technology Department proposes to undertake the following non-routine work plan addressing the computer and GIS needs of the City:
1) Overseeing the Electronic Features within the Emergency Communications Center Expansion Project
The Department will continue to oversee the installation of electronic equipment associated with physical upgrades to and expansion of the Emergency Communications Center. Upgrades will include new radio consoles, a new 911 telephone switch, an uninterrupted power supply (UPS) for the dispatch operations, and a larger generator to serve the building.
Target Date: December 31, 2011
2) Oversee the installation of a new VoIP phone system for all city buildings
The current telephone system is 18 years old and we have been faced with technological and support problems over the past several years. We have been working with a local technology company on designing a replacement system based on Voice over Internet Protocols (VoIP) and a transition plan from the current phone system. The department will begin the installation plan in the June/July timeframe.
Target Date: July 31, 2011
3) Develop Strategy for Technology Disaster Recovery Operations
Disasters can occur at anytime and being prepared to resume city operations if we were to lose major technology assets is paramount. Technology staff along with outside consultants will investigate technologies spanning enterprise data storage, networking and security to develop a plan that balances both disaster recovery planning and making sure adequate logistics and communications are in place in the event of a disaster that severely damages or destroys the Municipal Center. This effort will provide a plan that can be incorporated in the FY 2013-18 Capital Improvements Plan..
Target Date: February 28, 2012
4) Update Aerial/Oblique Photos, Elevation Data and Planimetric Layers for GIS
The City of Brentwood last updated aerial/oblique photography in March of 2009 and the elevation and planimetric data was last updated in March of 2006. Elevation and planimetric data include: 2 foot contour lines, DEM (Digital Elevation Model), edge of pavement, driveway, building footprints and sidewalk layers. The aerial photography will be acquired in winter of 2011 and delivered in the spring of 2012. The estimated time for elevation and plan data acquisition is summer of 2012.
Target Date: February - June 2012
