West Lafayette is close to filling its new Information Technology Director position.
Mayor John Dennis says the job was created to identify and improve some of the city’s technological deficiencies. He says it's taken three years to coordinate what needs to be done and move to writing a job description for someone who can achieve the city's goals.
The position includes overseeing technology with emergency services, utilities, and the website outreach programs.
Dennis says an offer has been made to an individual who he expects to accept. However, he says the announcement will be made at a later date.
The new I.T. Director will begin working on January 31st.
