Leffel-Sands said two computers in the clerk’s department had been restored Tuesday, but there were still 15 more that needed to be reconnected.
Once the problem is fixed, she said, the clerk’s office will be swamped for weeks trying to catch up with work and deal with residents who didn’t receive timely service.
“People are going to be angry,” Leffel-Sands said. “It’s put a huge strain on us.”
IT Director John Evans has reported some of the county’s servers are becoming outdated and will soon need to be replaced. Last year, he asked commissioners to purchase a backup server for $20,000 in case one failed, but the county has yet to authorize the purchase.
