Alderman Hoefle said December 22nd the Chamber of Commerce the Chamber Board called a meeting with some concerns and he attended that meeting. It was brought up at the meeting about the City Council voting to doing an audit. That Audit was never done and based on this meeting where one party claimed to have turned over $126,000 in liquid assets during their time. Currently the Chamber Board mentioned they have an $80,000.00 deficit and he believed the City should audit.
