Hey all,Have been trying for a bit now to get our City Manager here in my town of Petaluma to make the move to machine readable city data. Our city IT Manager gets it is totally on board, but has virtually no available staff hours to do anything about – nor does he have a City Manager who sees it as a high priority.Understood that our city, like many, has budget challenges and there are only so many staff hours to go around. But he seems to constantly be coming from a place of scarcity and is hard to sway on the up side of opening the data.Looking for examples and arguments out there to compel City leadership of a mid-sized city (approx. 60,000 people) to go for it and make the switch to making city data available in a form that we can actually do something with it.Thanks.
