Earlier this month, the Chambers County Commission approved the purchase of a new computer and IT system for the Probate Office. The conversion will include a move to a windows-based server. The scheduled transition date is August 1 and will begin as soon as possible.
In preparation for the change, Probate Judge Brandy Easlick announced that the tag and title portion of the LaFayette office and the entire Probate office at the Lanett Annex will be closed on Tuesday, July 23; Wednesday, July 24; and Thursday, July 25 each day until 1 pm, 12 noon central time. On those days, the Lanett office will be open from 12 noon until 4 pm and the LaFayette office will be open from 12 noon until 4:30 pm. Additionally, in order to change over to the new system, The LaFayette office will close at 3 pm and the Lanett office will close at 2 pm.
Judge Easlick expressed her appreciation to the members of the Chambers County Commission for approving the expenditure, and to Richard Huckaby, IT consultant for the Chambers County Commission, hard work and advice and guidance in the process of finding a software provider in addition to all the other service.
Easlick also offered thanks to her staff for the hard work and dedication. “They are invaluable and they have made the best of outdated software and hardware,” she said.
Judge Easlick also reminded citizens to come to the office for tag renewals for July or other business before the last day of the month and to note the times the offices will be closed for training.
“We appreciate everyone’s cooperation and patience as we work to make the Probate Office a more efficient office for the people of Chambers County,” she added.
