The Commission isn't doing a good job of collecting the burger tax from all required to pay. It is not providing support to some events that draw visitors to the city. It IS providing support to some charities supported by commissioners that, worthy though they might be, hardly seem likely to encourage any city tourism.  Time for an audit, TI suggests.
