Oh gosh, when I saw the .aspx I was horrified to think it was Web Forms... but then looking under the hood in the markup, it looks like they're at least avoiding the ASP.Net webcontrols and doing pretty vanilla dynamic HTML... albeit hideous html with nested tables all over the place.

That said, this sort if simple .NET-based dynamic HTML would probably run just fine under Mono, so without the Silverlight dependency it probably could run under a free/open-source platform. And realistically, the city is paying far more for whatever hideous contract Sire Technologies has them under than any software/server costs to Microsoft for licenses.

Then again, probably modern ASP.Net MVC would run better than this on an open stack since MS has gone open-source with their MVC framework.
