sorry, but I don't think that's going to do Denver much good at all...
see the thread "Denver decides to go to fix on failure" at http://www.greenspun.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg.tcl?msg_id=000J5i
though it is a nice gesture on the part of the governor...

"The council plans to regularly release information about its progress to the public."
"There is a need to get credible and objective information out to the public,'' said Brian Mouty, statewide year 2000 project manager. "A lot of people don't know what's going to happen.''
Yes, good responsible job, Denver!
Thanks Bobbi, I'll e-mail this to a few reporters.

This Colorado 2000 Council seems to know infrastructure compliance is key, but it sounds to me as if the governor just realized this month that infrastructure is at risk. Here are a few more quotes:
"With the millennium fast approaching, Gov. Roy Romer has put together a task force of people from private businesses and government agencies that provide critical services that could be disrupted if computer systems fail at the dawn of the year 2000.
"Romer set up the Colorado 2000 Council in August and just recently announced the first seven appointments to the committee. Three more appointments are expected, but those may be made by Gov. elect Bill Owens.
"The council will allow members to find weak spots, share solutions and work on joint contingency plans."
