OVer $6,000 to monitor employee use of the internet and emails. A frequent question we have received is whether the City Manager and City Attorney will have someone monitoring their computer usage - we don't know.
If you work at the city, is abuse of computer time a problem and could you be in trouble for looking at LovelandPolitics (even on your own time) ?
Seems strange that anyone in the public can use a city computer without any filtering services or monitoring (at the library) while trusted employees of the city will have their computer usage monitored on a regular basis.
We understand the need for management to monitor employee usage of computers when its excessive or obscene. However, should the City Council approve the significant additional appropriation requested to monitor everything the employees do online (including emails) if the intent is to control information flow from a public organization?
