Gutierrez also reported that the Treasurer’s Office experienced only “minor problems” associated with the so-called Y2K computer problem.
“Thanks to the hard work of the Doña Ana County Information Systems staff, we were ready,” Gutierrez said. “With cooperation from my office, the Information Systems staff completed a timely conversion of all the old computer files and converted to a new version of the Banner software system, which included several tests and retests for Y2K compliance.”
Gutierrez said he anticipates operations at the Treasurer’s Office to continue running smoothly throughout the year 2000 and beyond.
