County Manager Jon Saari should be fired for this mess up, everyone in Grant County Gov knows its his mistake.

Having had some very displeasing/disappointing dealings with Mr. Saari in the past, I tend to support your suggestion that he be fired. Surely we can find a better quality county manager than we have in Jon Paul Saari (Sorry?).

Saari is the reason Grant county is in a mess.

Is there anyone out there who believes the county is more screwed up than Silver City? If we're talking about firing people I would like to add Alex Brown, Ed Reynolds and James Marshall to the list.

The county will spin this problem and put the blame somewhere else but where it belongs. Square in the lap of commissioners Sedillo, Miller and company.

Their lack of technical knowledge in a project that effects revenues, morale of county employees, and overall functioning of daily operations at the county is not a suprise. This is the same county that allowed Triadic to extort a no-bid contract between the two parties for many years. Now, with a knee-gerk reation to eliminate the "relationship" with Triadic by entering into a new contract with another company (Tyler Technologies) is a repeat of the mistake made with Triadic many years ago.

A little honesty with technical vendors is critical in the bid process and again, a lack of technical knowledge is to blame in such a difficult conversion. The county employs no professional staff in regards to technology. A technical consultant could have made a world of difference to this projects success for pennies on the dollar.

NOW, they want to enter into a pissing contest with the vendor which WILL result in a relationship with Tyler that will mirror the Triadic fiasco. Holding payment on a signed contract is stupid....... GOOD LUCK.

The tax paying citizens of Grant county deserve better.

Confusion in Grant County?? I'm confused over the fact that Grant County even has computers! Maybe we are coming out of the stone age.

Local folks need to look at the big picture.

Sarri works for the commissioners, their finger prints are all over this blunder.

Sarri will be the scapegoat.
