Computers, servers, and data processing. What do all of these have in common? They all have to do with the IT department located in City Hall. The IT department oversees all information tech in the city of Fairbanks; including but not limited to cell phones, computers, the internet network, etc. Ben Barrio, the IT Director, explains how the IT department uses a program called “KNOCK” to remotely manage, monitor, and inform the IT department about network logistics coming in and out the City. Be sure to check out the photos of our awesome IT department below.
