  • 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.
