If your information on ANY topic, especially the Coliseum, is from David Hales or Tari Renner you are getting “Fake News”.
Jamie Mathy is quoted in today’s paper saying the Management Agreement with CIAM “literally forbid the city from having access to the raw numbers”. SOURCE
Jamie, why did the City buy the Point of Sale equipment that gave great recaps of every event? For CIAM?
That system was over $100,000 so the CITY could see the concession sales. Hales chose not to look at the reports!
Maybe Jamie should read the management agreement – this is the original: Management Agreement CIAM
I sure don’t see anything prohibiting the City from accessing their own equipment!
Funny how the contract says ALL revenue is the property of the City!
CIAM thought it was their piggy bank because DAVID HALES and the Council didn’t do their job!
DAVID HALES never enforced this! Why? Stupid? Incompetent? In on the scam?
Got another raise for Hales before he leaves?
CIAM is responsible for the costs incurred by the City investigating their own incompetence! It’s at least ten’s of thousands of dollars!
Jamie, get better information. You look ridiculous.
In the same article Karen Schmidt claims “There is almost nothing you can do with people who decide they want to collude and scheme”. Karen, how did I know?
She goes on to explain the audits were “clean”, of course leaving out that concessions were NEVER audited. “Clean” is a stupid statement when the losses the auditors reported were MUCH higher than CIAM reported!
Karen, why didn’t you listen when Judy Stearns and Kevin Lower tried to get an audit of concessions?
Trip down memory lane:
Kevin Lower and Judy Stearns called for a complete review of the agreement with CIAM. This was the meeting where the City wanted approval to go from professional to junior hockey. That change should have been used to VOID the contract and start over. Hales, Renner, Karen Schmidt, Mboka Mwilambe, and Joni Painter ignored Stearns and Lower.
City Attorney Jeff Jurgens also ignored both. Of course he works for the City, not citizens. Sage, Fazzini, Black, and Fruin were absent!
April 14, 2014 – Just hit play
Tell everybody again how it isn’t the Council’s fault Karen?
David Hales is despicable on this video. He knew concessions weren’t audited.
If the rest didn’t know, they should have!
Anybody sorry they didn’t vote last April?
Anybody sorry about WHO they voted for?
