Bills and Payroll finally posted! UPDATE!

Update:  The City promptly replied to my FOIA for missing information

I amended the information received below in BOLD.  See the receipts here:  201503241124_Redacted  Even if only one person ate, why are taxpayers paying the bill?  Does your boss pay for your lunch?

ADMIN City Council Expenses American AI $ 384.20 Airfare ‐ T. Renner, One Voice Conf., Washington DC ‐ March 3‐5, 2015

Just airfare – this is when Renner went to DC to lobby for mental health dollars.  (I hope our reps didn’t know this is the guy who calls people he doesn’t agree with “off their meds”. )
