Champaign's computer network to go down for upgrade

CHAMPAIGN — Some city services and online features will be inaccessible this week as officials upgrade their computer network to fiber.

The network will be down at all city facilities beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday and should remain that way until Monday.

During the outage, the following services are expected to be unavailable when residents visit the Champaign City Building:

— Payment of parking tickets or permits.

— Updating of liquor licenses.

— Servicing of parking-meter cash keys.

— Inquiry regarding payment information.

— Processing of financial receipts and reports.

The following online services will also be inaccessible:

— Payment of parking citations or parking permits.

— Issuance or payment of building permits.

— Interactive Web maps.

— Archived meeting information.

— Permit processing information.

— Champaign police media reports.

Those with questions can call the city's information technologies department at 403-8970.

Administrative Services Supervisor Kris Koester said drivers with parking tickets will be given three extra business days in addition to the customary seven days to pay their tickets. Because the parking system will be down, tickets issued beginning as of Wednesday will not even be reflected in the city database until Monday.

Anyone with questions about parking tickets may call the parking programs office at 403-4700.
