  • Provide support in cooperation with town consultants or employees, if any, for management, maintenance, development, procurement, deployment and use of information technology and telecommunication services as needed by the town and town-related organizations and events. Such support would specifically include the town website and computers, telephone and internet systems in town municipal buildings.

  • Serve as liaison with regional technology entities such as Western Mass Connect, Massachusetts Broadband Institute, and WiredWest.
