An Attack of the Vaporware

Make America Grate Again
By latest estimates, Lake County has taken some $75,000,000 in early property tax prepayments. So is it too much to hope David Stolman would quickly recover $5,000,000 in spare change from the seat cushions in the Lake County Treasurer's office?

According to the News-Sun ...
Calling concerns over a $4.9 million electronic filing system that was never finished politically motivated, Lake County Board Chairman Aaron Lawlor limited discussion Friday morning about a News-Sun article that reported on the failure of the system to be implemented.

Of course, $5,000,000 is a lot of money to spend on software. Even for software that works, and not just vaporware.

One spokesman however took your LakeCountyEye to task: "Is building an electronic filing system for a County the size of Lake County any less difficult than, say, rebuilding an electrical grid in Puerto Rico?"

President Trump on Sunday called people who are criticizing his administration's response to the damage caused by Hurricane Maria "politically motivated ingrates." "We have done a great job with the almost impossible situation in Puerto Rico."

Note to Ops: Get out your brooms, this may turn into a witch hunt.
