GREGG COUNTY — Discussion over finding a local Internet provider for the Gregg County Courthouse on Monday morphed into plans to open the building’s Wi-Fi capabilities to the public.
“That is a very, very do-able situation, and hopefully we can do it very soon,” Information Technology Director Derold Miller told Gregg County Commissioners.
Miller was responding to Commissioner Darryl Primo, who reopened discussion from a decision moments earlier, when the court voted to seek proposals from local Internet providers.
Miller said lawyers working in the courthouse often ask about access to the county’s Internet portal. Miller said he has discussed the potential with the district attorney’s office, which wanted to determine first whether or not the county may offer the service for free.
