Not a lot of buzz about this bit of info from Inside Scoop on where the International Civil Rights Museum has spent city money:
The group has spent just shy of $580,000 on of the city’s $750,000.
A big chunk –some $281,000 — went to bank loans.
Another large portion — nearly $135,000 — paid utility bills. Of that, about $60,0000 went to pay overdue Duke Energy and Piedmont National Gas bills within days of the museum getting the city’s cash.
Yet more evidence of the museum’s dire financial straits.
