Dear Source:
I wonder if the Southern Florida Waste Management Authority site: http://www.swa.org/default.htm costs $750,000 to keep up to date yearly? It is a great site! I hope to hear from them how much it costs them to keep up and running.
How much did the VWMA spend already on their site: www.viwma.org and only now it is going to go "live" soon? According to another VI news source, " In January, Global Tech was granted a $75,000 contract to create and manage the site, with a one-year option to renew at the same rate."
I just checked on our VIWMA site and it is " under construction", maybe by next week it will be somewhat close or even better than this example by Florida for that price tag.
