From Bills and Payroll for Monday night: http://www.cityblm.org/Modules/ShowDocument.aspx?documentid=10911
In June I posted receipts showing Tari Renner is feeding himself and calling it “business meal”: https://blnnews.com/2016/06/30/free-lunches-do-exist/
This month’s P-Card spending shows more Renner meals with no one else listed. Of course I’m going to file a FOIA for the receipts.
More questions: Eric Rankin is a County Board member and fellow Democrat. Who was the City Board Member? Why not state the name?
The US Conference of Mayors was June 24-June 27. That’s 3 nights and 4 days. How did Tari’s hotel cost $1044.52? FOIA filed.
The former Coliseum management did not issue financial information before they quit. There is now NOTHING on the City website from May 1, 2015 to when VenueWorks took over on April 1, 2016. Was Bronner Group hired to fix the mess? Is this all it cost? Will it even be possible to figure out what CIAM did? Why did the City write John Butler a check for concession equipment with my lawsuit still pending, a financial mess at the Coliseum, and from what I hear – a mess inside the Coliseum?
Outside legal was close to $70,000!
I believe Beerfest was funded on behalf of the BCPA, but the BCPA had no plans to reimburse the City from the profits.
