Private dancing

Here's a chance for Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach and Chief of Staff Steve Cox to kill two birds with one stone: Outsource the information technology department and get rid of those pesky city employees; keep the money for infrastructure; pay an outsourcing organization three times what it would cost in-house for a design/build of a new IT network architecture, with a 60-month time frame for delivery of a working system, which will make the system obsolete by then. Then Bach and Cox can boast they saved the city money, again, by going to the "private" sector.

The other benefit would be that those "deleted" emails ("Ain't no sunshine," cover story, July 2) might be easier to find by the Indy, etc., when a Colorado Open Records Act request is filed, because the organization running the IT department won't care to whom they give information, and will not run afoul of the law.
