Aging Missoula County Website Server Dies

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

After an effort to improve Missoula County's aging website server, county staff said that it was pronounced dead on Wednesday.

Dale Bickell, who is the Chief Administrative Officer for Missoula County, said in a press release that county technology staff began working to improve the performance of the website server on Monday, but it was just struggling too much.

He added that staff is already migrating the county's website to a new server and he expected the website to be up and running by Monday at the latest.

"We are in the beginning stages of soliciting a vendor to design and launch a new website for the county. Unfortunately, our server decided to give up the ghost before we were far enough down that path," Bickell said.

Many people rely on the county website to access information related to property taxes, elections, property information, permits and more.

"We understand this is an inconvenience to the public and we look forward to launching a new site with improved online services this year," he added.

In the meantime, Bickell said that the public can contact the county's switchboard to get connected to the appropriate department. That number is: 721-5700.
