FaceLifting City’s Website – a Waste and a Lost Opportunity


I’ve recently come across a discussion on City’s recent decision to overhaul the its website.

According to the plan, the City will be spending $15,000 to on a contracting company to do the overhaul. It will spend additional dollars to upgrade and maintain the site time to time in future.

I think this is a total waste of City’s taxpayers’ dollars. Jobs like this could easily be accomplished through a UMD student project. UMD student projects, such as Gateway Park design  have produced fantastic results in the past.

True, there are issues like ADA / 504 compliance are part of the new requirement, but Computer science / information tech students are actually taught on these subjects  in the class.
