Such support would specifically include the town website and computers, telephone and internet systems in town municipal buildings.
  • Advise and support the operational needs of the Ashfield Municipal Light Plant.
  • Serve as liaison with regional technology entities such as Western Mass Connect, Massachusetts Broadband Institute, and WiredWest.
