-A A +A
By Johnathan Ryan

See Lancaster officials expressed shock Thursday after Lancaster City Council voted to yank away $198,000 in funding for the promotions and tourism group.

After a closed-door session, council voted:

• To fund See Lancaster $27,829 of its $36,829 shortfall to pay staff salaries through the end of the month

• To initiate an independent audit of the group at the city's expense

• To cut the group's $198,000 from the city's proposed 2008-09 budget

All the votes were unanimous, with Councilman Audrey Curry and Preston Blackmon not present.
