KCPD & City Hall Soon To Share Tech



Call it a Kansas City tech collabo or a cost cutting measure . . . Here's an emergency ordinance funded at around $3-MILLION.

I don't know. What could?

As a Retiree I would hope that someone is challenging this. This appears to be another attempt at local control. Have the civilians been made aware of this? Chapter 84 addresses what the BOPC is permitted to do, and this most certainly does not meet that requirement.

The City has an IT Department? What do they do?
Every time you call 311 and they transfer you to another Department "the computers are down", so what does IT do?
Is it all about rebooting Sly's Laptop after he's picked up another virus watching Japanese Porn?

The City IT Department is a wonderful service to Kansas City.

If we’re such a smart city then why doesn’t kcmo.gov website not work worth a damn, even city employees joke about how bad their outdated systems and computers are. It’s a wonder anything under this mayors watch works at all
