After the Wilmington City Council spent almost $20,000 on a trip to Washington, DC last month, the city’s audit committee met Monday to discuss travel policies and procedures.

City officials spent $19,000 in tax payer money on a trip to the National League of Cities Conference. Despite a projected $6.6 million budget deficit, city officials said the trip was worth it.

Councilmen Jim Quinn said the audit committee’s review of City Council expense policies should ease tax payer concerns. “I think a policy certainly would clear things up and make those people who are critical of City Council travel policy now. A new policy might be what they’re looking for.”

The audit committee will also review topics like cell phones and fax machines provided for council members at tax payers’ expense. It is not clear when the committee’s recommendations will be passed along to City Council.
