Member Quote from the Report:

“The thing that I have been challenged with is how we go about doing a disaster recovery plan in a cost-efficient manner. If we wanted to duplicate what we have right now it would be upwards of $4.5 million to $5 million, which is ridiculous and isn’t going to happen.”
