Philadelphia amends contract for water-billing system


An Ethics Board investigation into Neff's departure for Civitium is under way, prompted by a city contract with Civitium for a $300,000 radio frequency analysis to ensure that a planned municipal wireless network wouldn't interfere with other systems. Neff said she is not concerned about the probe and doesn't expect the full board to meet until long after she is gone. "There was nothing wrong with my decisions. Anybody who knows me knows I'm a very ethical person," she said.

Her future boss, Greg Richardson, said his company is working with the Ethics Board and does not believe any rules have been broken. "We support Dianah 100 percent," he said.
