Birthday parties, proofreading services, cash for blog posts

We're paying for all of this. The commissioners approve the monthly expenditures without even looking at the expenses.

  • Birthday party $289.50 for pizza from Little Nipper's
  • Proofreading services paid to Julie Daubner - Elaine Cappucci's sister in law ($100), Michelle Anderson, Mary-Helen Ferkett, Annette B. Sanchez
  • I'm especially interested in this one. The bloggers for Lebolife blog get paid $25 per submission.  http://lebomag.com/about/blogger-roll-call/ Interested in joining Lebolife blogs? Email editor in chief Susan Morgans. 
Here is the list of expenditures for the month of December 2015.

Last month, there was the Original Pancake House pancake breakfast for $1100.  Who's monitoring this stuff?

Why are some parts of the December expenditures redacted? Like, for example, how much was paid to Gateway Engineers in December and why can't the public know? #sketchy

What page is the check to Gateway Engineers? I can't seem to find it.

I do know that Bonnie Cross charged the resident $2.00 for redacting some minors' names. The money had to be paid UPFRONT!

I'm still processing the charge to DJ Davey D. (David Naughton). Did they have a DJ for the Feller party at the Saloon?

Page 3 for Gateway -- look for a very big white space. And wait a minute, I think I saw a minor's name. Maybe he is 18 now?

11:56, it looks as though an expense that was paid through EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) isn't listed, just the payee. This list is a from the bank register, anything paid by check is listed.

A quick calculation - I have 1,874 published posts. At $25 a pop, that equals $46,850. With $60-$100 as the going rate for proofreading, I can't even guess how much I could have gotten for that. Mt. Lebanon has never given me a birthday party or hired a DJ for me. I am definitely doing this all wrong.

12:19 AM, I can't take credit for this. Thank you, Nick M. They had the audacity to charge you $2 for this document.

Look at what it is costing me because of the Office of Open Records ruling in my favor!! I swear I am going to have a stroke because of the municipality.
