Despite Promises, And Spending, SEWRPC Website Still Has Dial-Up Era Look

It doesn't look like the Southeastern Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission is going to get its long-awaited, newly-designed website up and running before the end of the year, as Executive Director told commissioners was the plan in early December before they cut out for their fancy, taxpayer-paid soiree at The University Club.



Not while the tenderloin and cordon bleu were getting cold?

Let's remember that getting the website into the modern communications ere was going to be one of former Executive Director Phil Evenson's duties.

Evenson left the commission late last year and came back as a consultant with tasks that included work on a new and improved website, as SEWRPC told Journal Sentinel investigative reporter Dan Bice.

So here we are months later, with just a few days to go in 2009 and the website is as dull and dense as ever.

Rumor has it that SEWRPC will be implementing layoffs that start at the beginning of the new year..... supposedly one of those layoffs is the person assigned to maintaining the website. Also, Evenson assigned to updating the website?! I am sure he is as computer savvy as your typical person of his generation..."how do you turn this thing on?"
