The recent resignation of Steven Sattler from the Columbia Association has raised more red flags about the computer software fiasco that has so far cost Columbia lien payers about $3 million and is nowhere near being complete. According to this story by Jennifer Broadwater in The Columbia Flier, Sattler was responsible for “the development and launch of a Customer Service System, information management software under development since 2006 and intended to be launched earlier this summer after multiple delays.”
Some have suggested that there is much more to this story than is being disclosed.
While I am certain that the current CA board would prefer to simply move on I think it might be helpful to have an independent investigation into what exactly caused this train to run off the tracks. The CA board owes that much to the Columbia property owners who are footing the bill for this mess.
