The Auditor addressed Supv Dunkel’s request to see if the County’s outgoing telephone calls could show up on recipient’s telephones with caller ID.The County’s plan with Qwest has caller ID because our telephone system works with blocks of numbers and one designated, working number for an office would have to be selected to show up on caller ID.That one office would likely be the recipient of caller’s automatically dialing the number on caller ID.The Auditor believes nothing should be changed with the system because of chaos of one office receiving calls that are intended for one of several offices.
A motion was made by Supervisor Staudt and seconded by Supervisor Enabnit to adjourn.Motion carried 3-0.
