Besides the typical IT responsibilities including but not limited to computers, servers, backups, antivirus software, firewalls, virtual environment, wireless, switches, network topology, hardware and software, the IT Department assists all Town of Waxhaw departments with their specific needs. These needs can range from wireless mobile units for the Police Department, imaging software for the waste water camera inspection system that is used by Public Services and wireless technology used in the parks and down town area.
One of the newest projects the IT Department has taken on is video streaming. Board of Commissioners meetings are held twice a month and are streamed live on YouTube.com. Parades, summer concerts and other special events are also streamed and will be advertised ahead of time on social media and Waxhaw.com.
