The Christchurch City Council is taking the Y2K issues related to computer chips not being able to operate in the new millennium very seriously, and has set 30 June 1999 as the date by which all of Council will meet Y2K compliance.
"Our Citys infrastructure must be guaranteed and we have set about insuring that all issues are identified and solved with six months to spare," said Bob Lineham the Councils Finance Director.
The Christchurch City Council has been working on this issues for over 18 months, with a number of Council business units having already addressed some areas of non compliance.
A full reconnaissance of all issues has been undertaken. To date nothing has been identified that gives cause for concern, and a number of processes have been put in place to check and rectify all processes and systems.
All major Council systems have certification of compliance for Y2K and other systems are being upgraded.
The Christchurch City Council will transfer a staff member to co-ordinate the remaining issues and ensure Y2K certification is achieved by 30 June.
