Nashua

City looks into workers’ restaurant tabs

Continue reading below

Nashua has temporarily stopped all taxpayer-funded meals for city workers while it investigates how public works crews ran up a restaurant tab of nearly $1,500 while working on a sidewalk project. The Nashua Telegraph used a Right-to-Know request to obtain records showing that city workers made 38 purchases at The Sausage King of Nashua, some for as little as $9 and some for more than $100 between August and November 2012. Further Right-To-Know requests by the newspaper showed that Streets Department workers bought $5,285 of taxpayer-funded meals at five restaurants. The city’s chief financial officer has stopped all taxpayer-funded meals, and the mayor has revoked the authority of low-level managers to approve meal purchases.
