Business Promotion at Tax Payer Expense

I spotted a short article about the county establishing a county wide data base highlighting the Huron County’s resources. Basically Ron Wruble went to a conference, saw the latest in gee-whiz stuff from willing vendors and came back and found a project to do.

Great idea, just that the wrong folks are being pitched to develop and pay for it. Having the Huron County IT department develop and maintain a business web site is not what governments do. Here I thought Huron County was solidly conservative.  

Get the chamber of commerce units from each community to pitch in $5-10K and have a local developer put together a web application. Very doable.
