Taxpayers on hook as Tamarac commission travel budget balloons – Sun Sentinel

Tamarac city commissioners are taking more than 30 trips this year across Florida and beyond, and taxpayers will pick up the estimated $80,000 tab.

These five elected officials are representing the city at civic meetings, classes and seminars in places like San Diego, Washington, D.C., Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Charlotte, N.C.

Their growing travel itinerary this year — unrivaled by other cities in South Florida — recently drew attention from city administrators, who proposed raising the budget after seeing travel costs mount to more than triple what was originally planned.

One of the pricier trips is the mayor’s scheduled $14,000 trek to Harvard University in Massachusetts, where he’ll attend a 10-day series of classes.
