LAGRANGE - LaGrange County government’s computers are running out of storage space.

I-T Director Bob Murphy told county council members this week that users have filled 5-and-a-half terabytes of a storage server that has a 6 terabyte capacity.

"We have reached a point within the county network, a rather critical point, of running low on storage capacity within the network. A lot of scanning going on. A lot of audio and video recording's going on, things like that that take up quite a bit of storage space. So we're running out of network storage and we're also running out of that capacity to back up the network storage," Murphy said.

The device Murphy wants would double the storage capacity to 12 terabytes at a cost of $20,505 and is expandable up to 24 terabytes.

Council agreed to consider an additional appropriation from the cume capital fund when it meets next month.

In other business Sheriff Terry Martin told council he’ll ask for funding in next year’s budget for a new full time position for code enforcement and paper service.

The code enforcement duties were shifted to the sheriff’s department last year and Martin says it’s been too time consuming.

"I've been getting anywhere from 5 to 10 calls a week. I'm doing the ones that are the major ones and I just can't keep up with it. I can't do the grass complaints. I can't do the minor stuff. I not going out actually seeking anything or looking at anything on the code enforcement," the sheriff said.

The incorporated towns no longer contribute financially to the county’s code enforcement efforts.

Commissioner Larry Miller says the majority of the complaints he hears are about tall grass and unlicensed vehicles.
