A former Lafayette city employee has the task of improving West Lafayette’s technology.
The city hired Anthony Newman as its new IT Manager.
He will oversee technology in the departments of emergency services, utilities, and the website outreach programs.
Newman also was a service manager for Roeing Corporation for the past two years.
He says those positions helped him become familiar with the technology needs of local government.
Newman’s position is a new one in the city.
It was created to enhance technology systems.
He started the job Tuesday and will make $65,000 a year.
