Nevada County – Collaborative Technology Center
“Passion” isn’t a word commonly used in conjunction with technology. But “passion” is what has made Nevada County’s Collaborative Technology Center a reality — and a success.
Chief Information Officer Steve Monaghan wanted to create a technology center in Nevada County for years. He sees first-hand the technological constraints rural county residents face — even with something most of us take for granted, like connecting to the internet. But a multi-million dollar price tag for a technology center was always a stumbling block. Steve, though, never shelved his idea, and an executive staff retreat motivated him to find a way to make it happen. And he did that by working collaboratively with different government agencies and the local community.
