Kent County Commissioners have decided to cut ties with its website provider and purchase all of the rights to bring its website in-house.
From the MyEasternShoreMD.com article:
After well over a decade, the county has severed ties with website provider Chesapeake Bay Internet Associates. At their meeting Tuesday, May 13, the Kent County Commissioners voted to use $55,000 from the 2014 contingency fund to purchase all rights to the online venue.
“We plan to take over the website and bring it in-house,” said County Administrator Ernie Crofoot.
During the time CBIA was involved, the county never put a website contract out for competitive bid. In 2010, CBIA owner Michael Wootton said the cost of county-related websites was about $40,000 per year.
