Great article today in the Plain Dealer from Chris Mitchell @MuniNetworks. A few weeks ago FairlawnGig met with state leadership as we hope they reconsider limiting this opportunity to the private sector.

The Cypress Companies (www.cypresscompanies.com) in Akron knows a great investment when it sees it - welcome to FairlawnGig.
We are happy to announce just how "boring" FairlawnGig is as we update you on the Summit County Criminal Justice Technology Project.
We are thrilled to be a part of this exciting project. Look for updates on our website and social media!
Last month, Executive Shapiro and Summit County Council approved the distribution of $7.5 million of CARES Act Funds to expand FairlawnGig to County and City of Akron municipal buildings that hold criminal justice proceedings or house inmates.
COVID-19 has forced us to rethink how government operates and delivers services. As we begin to adjust to life with the virus, we have to consider how to safely and efficiently meet the needs of our community. The expansion will facilitate virtual court proceedings to increase the safety and security of law enforcement, court employees, inmates and the general public.
