City leaders should reverse their 2019 decision to merge the city’s facilities and information technology departments if they want to get serious about upgrading the city’s tech infrastructure, a key alderman said on Tuesday.
“There needs to be a centralized clearing house for technology,” Ald. Gilbert Villegas (36), who chairs the City Council Committee on Economic, Capital and Technology Development, told The Daily Line on Tuesday. He said he plans to raise the issue as Chicago finance officials prepare the city’s 2022 budget.
