BUFFALO, NY (WBEN) - The probe into business dealings at the Erie Basin Marina appears to be expanding. Mayor Byron Brown and City Comptroller Mark Schroeder have turned over an audit on Marina expenses to the Erie County District Attorney's office to review for the potential of criminal wrongdoing. According to that audit, Brand-On Services underpaid the city over a five year period of operations at the Marina. As a contractor of the city, the company participates in a portion of its restaurant and Marina revenue.
Also 20,000 gallons of gasoline sold to Brand On is currently unaccounted for. The city also claims Brand On did not provide accurate reports of the amount of food and beverages sold at their various venues.
