What the tech?! Vince Lattanzio writes about the Philadelphia businesses that owe the police department $2.5 million for assorted services over the past few years. And guess who’s near the top of the list?
Among the top offenders, Butkovitz says, is the Phillies who haven’t paid a bill stemming back to Oct. 27, 2008. That was the day of Game 5 of the World Series was played at Citizens Bank Park. The game, against the Tampa Bay Rays, was postponed because of weather and had to be finished two days later.
Butkovitz says the team owes a total of $275,874.
Ahead of the Phillies, who came in at number two on the list, was the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The state owes $341,328 dating from March 12, 2007, according to the controller’s report.
And here we thought the Phillies had already been paying for what happened six years ago.
