Psh, that's nothing.  My town government is run by an idiot major who hates technology.  He does not have a computer, nor does most of town hall.  The town cannot accept email in any way, shape, or form.  The police department has to use the library to do online research.  The two fire departments are connected by ISDN @$400/month.  We were the last town in the state to get a computer-for free via a state & fed grant--for managing election proceedings; said asshole mayor went so far as to be out of town the day it was going to be delivered in order to avoid using it.  During the 3.5' snowstorm earlier this year, the major refused to hire contractors to clear the streets, so there were people using snowblowers to clear off their side roads...3 days after the storm hit.  The town purchases properties in downtown, fails to use them, and then sells them at a loss.  Most recently, the sewer line on an old American Legion building (next to town hall) was damaged, and rather than sell it to the interested party and fix it, they'd rather let him walk away as they try to assess blame.  They are already at a loss, and he was the only bidder on the property.

/idiot mayor has been in place for 25 years or so
//town is full of morons too
