    They already have a Director of Emergency Services. One would think the Director of Emergency Services would oversee communications as well. Here we go again, creating MORE empires for people to fight over and protect their employees over. Whatever happened to trying to be “Lean and Mean”? I guess I.O.W. is just like everywhere else, spending our money like a drunken sailor, money we ‘supposedly’ have I might add.
