Election Commission's Security Allotment Cut in Half While Metro IT Internal Fees Doubled

CM Mike Jameson asked Metro Director of IT Sandy Cole why the internal fees charged to the MEC by Metro IT (which has not control over MEC computer security) doubled from last year to this year (from $169,000 to $308,000) when, as Ms. Cole said, there was "no appreciable change" in services that Metro IT provided to MEC from year to year. Ms. Cole said that salary increases accounted for increase of service fees. Meanwhile, MEC's General Services security allotment was cut in half from approximately $400,000 to approximately $200,000.
