Previously I reported it appears the Palms Grill did not properly report sales to the State of Illinois and therefore underpaid Sales Tax: https://blnnews.com/2017/12/19/is-cash-missing-from-the-palms-grill/
I mentioned the next investigation had to be matching cash register receipts to bank deposits. The same person has done that:
The total in that column should have equaled what was deposited in the bank – the Total Receipts column.
Somebody needs to explain why the difference is almost $10,000!
I know the person who compiled this report filed numerous FOIA requests looking for why the cash is off. The response received most often was “no records” match your request.
This is more proof government isn’t capable of running a business.
On January 24, 2018 the Edgar County Watchdogs will be Live Broadcasting the Hearing on the Atlanta Public Library appeal of the Illinois Secretary of State Library’s decision to require the repayment of the $25,000 “Live and Learn” grant it received several years ago.
To see it live you have to be on Facebook. I’m sure they will post the video on their website later.
