#4 And of course, the taxpayer will be on the hook for the incompetence of municipal officials paid with taxpayer dollars in the first place. Also factor in there will be no accountability nor employment consequences for anyone involved.

#6 I can buy a lot of internal network security for $600K.

Just sayin'.

Or 800 seats, for 30 years, for a high-level enterprise endpoint.

#7 The city will pay an addition $25,000 to cover its deductible,

A lot cheaper than the cost of a secure infostructure. I expect it was proposed but voted down in favor of 3-way signs for the public bathrooms.

#8 "Prime suspect is Peggy the Hacker,
The dread Russian cyber-attacker."
"So, who squeezed this goose?"
"Surely someone with juice
Poached the egg..." "Someone yeggy?" "A cracker."
