The city of La Crosse is auctioning off seven Droid smartphones and one 17" LCD computer monitor. So why does the city have droids to begin with? Who authorized such a purchase? Why in the Hell would they sell a perfectly good 17" LCD monitor? The city wants to hire an efficiency consultant at a rate of $125,000. Well how about the city officials stop buying smartphones and upgrading from perfectly good computer monitors? Here are some suggestions for the city to save money.
- Get rid of all smartphones/cellphones for City employees.
- Stop selling and upgrading worthwhile equipment. (the only way to enforce this is to give the IT department 20% less budget than last year).
