A key official in charge of the city's problem-plagued 911 system upgrade has resigned.

Paul Cosgrave, commissioner of the Department of Information, Technology and Telecommunications, will retire on Dec. 31. "He made a commitment to the mayor to stay through the duration of his second term, and he's doing that," DoITT spokesman Nick Sbordone said. Under Cosgrave's watch, the 911 project, one of the biggest public safety efforts of the Bloomberg era, has ballooned in cost from $1.3 billion to $2 billion - and portions are two years behind schedule.

You know, way back when during the Stinkin Dinkins era, there was a "surcharge" for E911. They have moved into completely new digs over in Brooklyn, yet still can't get it right. 911 worked quite well when I worked the Communications Division back from 1980-1983...but then again, the more you think up the plumbing, the easier it is to stop up the drain!

Of course he also returned a reasonable portion of his salary
in a good faith effort to show some remorse since he was in charge of the fiasco(s).

And he naturally refused to accept any additional benefits he may have coming.

Didn't he?
Didn't he?

"He made a commitment to the mayor to stay through the duration of his second term, and he's doing that,"
If the mayor would have given a damn about the city, he would have said no, no, please go, leave early.
Get the hell out, you've done enough damage...
