NASHUA, N.H. (AP) — City officials in Nashua are looking into records that indicate public works crews ran up a nearly-$1,500 tab eating sausages at a local restaurant while working on a sidewalk project.

The Nashua Telegraph obtained the records through a Right-To-Know request. They show city workers made 38 purchases at “The Sausage King of Nashua,” some for as little as $9 and some for more than $100.

The meals, between August and November 2012, were purchased while the city was repairing Main Street sidewalks.

Mayor Donnalee Lozeau at first said the billing was related to a single employee who exercised “poor judgment” and is no longer working for the city. She later told the paper she wasn’t sure more employees weren’t involved because she hadn’t seen all the information yet.
