Detroit Departments Look to Upgrade Their Image via Web Outsourcing

DETROIT-Vision IT, a web designing company, has been contracted through the city of Detroit's Information Technology Services Department to create web sites for certain Detroit departments within the city government, as well as to redesign some of the more outdated sites. The project will begin with the web sites of the Detroit Cable Commission and the Human Rights Department. This will be the Cable Commission's first web site and will display programming schedules of channels 10 and 22, as well as other information pertaining to the cable service, including live video of City Council meetings and other such events.

Vision IT President David Segura told the Detroit Free Press that over the next year he expects contracts will add up to over $1 million. Segura went on to say that Vision IT's involvement in the web designs can help change the negative image that shadows the city of Detroit.
