    Mayor Marsh informed former Mayor Carmen Sabatino at Tuesday night’s (8/12/14) city Council meeting that the go kart races actually made money.

    Marsh had taken the position that if the go kart event lost money they would not be invited back in 2015.

    When asked how much money the event made for the city Marsh replied that there were still some bills to come in.

    The question is, doesn’t city staff know what the bills are when they are created. Surely the bills can’t be open ended and left to the discretion of the suppliers.

    Marsh should be advised that if city staff is not telling him the truth in the calculation of the profitability of this event and the accountability for the money, staff should become a subject for a grand jury.

    It is obvious that an independent audit of the income and expenses for this event should be conducted and the results made public.
