The two sending organization were incompetent as were the combined staffs. Bills came out from the authority.
The situation is that the authority is saddled with drones in the workforce and a board with no utility or IT experience just developers with their hand out for free exetension of service.
Had the transition to the authority gone correctly everyone would had to bid for jobs in competion with actually qualified outsiders.
Instead the drones were grandfathered in and their poor performance continues to the present.
Originally the authority was a good idea but now it smells so bad it should be disbanded.
During my 14 years as a utility executive the IT director that allowed bad bills to go out would have been looking for a new job the next day.
