The city's former chief technology officer began a redesign and overhaul of Baltimore's government website last year, but left the task unfinished, city officials said this week. The half-completed job, which included a redesign of the site's main page but not agency pages, created the need for the city to solicit bids on a complete website redesign and hosting contract, said Chris Tonjes, Baltimore's current Chief Technology Officer. The city is now considering bids from eight firms that range from $68,000 to $840,000.
