From the Daily News:
City Controller John Liu is refusing to approve a new $8 million contract the Bloomberg administration has awarded for the city's controversial payroll and timekeeping system.
Liu wants to know now why the computerized system known as CityTime has ballooned to more than 10 times its original price tag.
When development of CityTime began in 1998, officials promised it would use new-age hand scanners and other technology to eliminate abuse of employee timecards by thousands of workers.
The system has instead turned into an uncontrolled gravy train for high-paid consultants and a boondoggle for taxpayers.
Doesn't EVERYTHING our City promises will save us money turn out that way?
