If Matt Brown underestimated the costs of the Coliseum amphitheater to begin construction without having to get permission…?

GSO amphitheater: half a million

"Note the lede — ‘construction on a $95,000 amphitheater.’ Now $130,000 has already spent, and when council member Robbie Perkins asked Brown point blank how much more money he needed to finish the job, Brown said $350,000, more than half of which would be so-called sponsorship dollars. So that brings the total to $480,000, which means you can go ahead and count on at least half a million."

“The city manager has the authority to approve construction that costs less than $300,000, according to the city code.”

Matt probably paid off Council Members with free tickets to the Eagles, Elton John, the Circus and the ACC Tournament.

Which the Council Members probably gave to thier biggest campaign donors

Nothing to see here folks.

There will be no repremand and no consequences.

He just lied to the entire city.

No big deal, the politicians have been paid for.

Don't worry, Tony Wilkins will defend him.

How could $95,000 turn into $480,000?

Five times the original estimate.

Did anybody other than the Colesium staff look at this?
