MASON CITY – First Ward City Council member John Lee told that he has requested a “special presentation” on the city’s Micro Enterprise program.

Council member Lee told NIT that “I just back from a vacation this afternoon. Before I left, I requested to have a special presentation of the MicroEnterprise program at a council (meeting) in August. I asked for specifics to whom is involved in the program, how much each have received, etc. I will let you know if I hear back about it and when it may be on the council meeting.”

Last week, NIT asked Lee and the other five council members, as well as Mayor Eric Bookmeyer, if he was aware that a local business owner – Tyler Anderson – was spending city tax dollars on candy junk food items.  NIT also proved that Anderson had spent hundreds of Mason City taxpayer dollars out of city limits, a clear violation of the Micro Enterprise program’s rules.  Anderson spent $624.39 at Accelerated Wraps, a Forest City business.  “Participating businesses can receive reimbursement for pre-approved goods and/or services purchased within the city limits of Mason City,” the Micro Enterprise program guidelines state.

More on this developing story on the way, including how one business owner spent thousands of tax payer dollars on a new sidewalk and then quit the business.
