WHEREAS, this resolution has been submitted by the County Executive on

Ulster BOCES, Orange/Ulster BOCES, Dutchess BOCES and Sullivan BOCES (the

consortium in soliciting bids for network and internet bandwidth to provide an

internal network between sites and to connect to the internet; and

agency and to act on their behalf in securing a bid; and

WHEREAS, once a bid for internet bandwidth is secured, Ulster County shall

then have the option of contracting for the bid services or declining to participate

RESOLVED, that the Ulster County Legislature hereby authorizes Ulster
