The I.T. Manager is the designated point
-of-contact for general software and technical equipment vendors, as well as state and municipal software support providers. All computer and network technology requests are channeled through the I.T. Department for research and analysis. The I.T. model combining technological expertise and "single-point" technology budgeting allows for the most efficient use of designated technology funds.

Ongoing projects and goals of the I.T. Department to benefit the Town of Waterboro include the archiving of documents, photos and videos pertaining to the history of Town government. The I.T. Department has worked with the Waterboro Historical Society, the Waterboro Cemetery Committee, and others, to digitally archive historical documents and photos to be made available to the general public via the Town website. Among the items now available on the Town website are photos and data pre-dating the 1947 Fire which destroyed large portions of Town land and buildings, as well as a very large number of gravestone from many of the cemeteries within the town. Town Reports dating back 130 years are also in the digitizing process and will be released on the Town website as they become available. The Town of Waterboro I.T. Department continues to preserve and make available rare glimpses of the Town's past, and offer a wealth of historical data to the public now and for future generations.
