Obama administration’s “Campaign to Cut Waste” which would begin to consolidate said overlaps.
Headed up by Vice President Biden, the new waste cutting initiative would also be dumping irrelevant .gov websites. Which led me to question the future of the phila.gov/311 site, due to its lack of relevancy.
Low and behold, this morning, I came across this little gem in Technically Philly!
According to the story, Daniel Heitzer, the deputy DOT chief information officer for business improvement services said,“we are targeting to have 75 percent of [license and permit applications] by volume up by end of year, getting contractors, developers and homeowners out of line at the Municipal Services Building and online.”
Phila.gov must have been listening. In an effort to stay relevant and possibly avoid the Vice President’s chopping block, Philadelphia is promising to help things in this city run smoothly!
According to the Technically Philly article, the project was actually laid out in January as a top priority.
Kudos to the city’s press office for a well timed press release.
