According to an audit released by Schroeder's department last week, Brand-On Services underpaid the city in each of the past five years. As a contractor of the city, the company shares a cut of its restaurant and marina revenue. The audit also claims that after the city sold 383,173 gallons of gas to Brand-On, but the company only reported selling 362,484 gallons to customers. That means more than 20,000 gallons is currently unaccounted for.
2 On Your Side contacted Brand-On Services through email when the audit initially came out, but Operations Manager Julie A. Wolasz replied that they had not received a copy of the audit yet, and would not be able to comment at this time.
