Starke County IT Director Joe Short appeared before the commissioners this week to present the updated maintenance agreement between the county and CSI, the provider of software for the judge, probation department and criminal justice department. County attorney Martin Lucas had previously reviewed the agreement and found one issue within the document.
Lucas said the agreement limited the company’s liability in the maintenance agreement and had asked Short to contact the company to see if that portion of the contract could be stricken. Short returned this week with the updated agreement, with the paragraph concerning liability stricken.
Lucas again reviewed the document, this time giving it his full approval and said it was a fair contract. The commissioners approved a motion to accept the agreement.
