Austin City Departments Know How to Party Hardy


  • An investigation by KXAN found three Austin departments spent over $15,000 on holiday parties
  • At least $10,000 was spend on holiday parties for five other City of Austin departments
  • The money was reportedly spent on food, gifts and entertainment
  • The excessive spending suggests there is no clear policy for how much departments can spend on parties
  • A total of $140,532.97 was spent on parties in December from 34 Austin city departments
  • Records also show Austin departments spent almost as much as Houston, Dallas and Fort Worth combined.
  • Comparatively, Houston spent $80,347.42, Dallas spent $59,799.17 and Fort Worth spent $900.00
