Jon Halvorsen, Senior Sales Manager of Teleminder, explained the benefits of having a <br />Teleminder system at the Town. He noted that Teleminder was a stand-alone computer system <br />which would tie into the Town's phone system and which the Town would own and operate on <br />site. Its map -based interface would allow the Town to quickly contact residents in certain parts or <br />all of the Town on emergency matters, i.e. fire. Mr. Halvorsen also noted that there were twelve <br />Teleminder systems in California including Atherton and Milpitas. He commented that the <br />system came with maps of the Town which were updated every two years. The updates of the <br />phone numbers occurred about once a quarter and it was estimated that to update this phone list <br />would take about fifteen minutes. Mr. Halvorsen explained other applications for this program <br />such as contacting the elderly or those in need of assistance. He also explained what happened if <br />an answering machine was reached. The cost of this system was $29,500 with a maintenance <br />charge of 15% of total purchase price per year for maintenance. Mr. Halvorsen presented a <br />demonstration for the Council and was available to answer any questions. <br />Betsy Bertram, 11854 Page Mill Road, asked if there was off-site backup and Mr. Halvorsen <br />responded that backup tapes were kept at their offices. <br />Dr. Robert Smithwick, 25215 La Loma Drive, asked about the liability issue and the City <br />Attorney responded that she would be looking into that issue. <br />Dauber asked to see a copy of the instruction booklet <br />PASSED BY CONSENSUS: To direct the City Attorney to contact Atherton and to discuss in <br />detail their use of the Teleminder system and to report back to the City Council. <br />3.
