Forgetful Council loses vital website

09.26.08 | 1 Comment

Yesterday I reported on how our supposedly efficient Conservative Council had lost a £125, 000 commuted sum agreement.

Now it looks like it’s spreading.  The Council appears to have forgotten to re-register/pay for the domain name for the Local Strategic Partnership, to which it (sort of) provides the secretariat. 

Click on (where you’re directed from the Council website) and you get, one of those strange domain name companies I don’t really understand but which appear to pick up loose, unpaid domains as part of their business model.

 The question is how much it’s going to cost to get it back – my techie mate reckons it could be a little, or a lot, and whose going to apologise for the wasted tax payer cash and inconvenience to people like me who want to look at LSP minutes to see what this dodgy Council is trying to get away with (story to follow when I’ve written it).
