The Hot Beat


The second-day story, with your help. Call Gazette reporter Adam Belz at (319) 398-8273 or e-mail him:

Supervisor expenses surprisingly low

The blog post a couple weeks ago about Jim Houser’s threat to charge mileage for his drive from the Palmer Building to Westdale elicited a little bit of a response.

So I called the Auditor’s Office to get a list of paid claims the supervisors made from Dec. 1 to today. It could have been an unusual month due to the holidays, but the expenses were not exorbitant:

– Jim Houser claimed $4.20 for stamps.
– Lu Barron claimed $16 in parking fees and $180 in mileage for four trips to Iowa City/Coralville.
– Linda Langston claimed $118 for a per diem on a trip to a National Association of Counties conference in Phoenix. (Airfare was probably claimed in a different time period.)
