Council members say group’s directors must answer for squandering public funds on money-losing event

    Several Port Washington aldermen on Tuesday called for the resignation of the members of the Main Street Inc. board of directors, saying they need to be held accountable for squandering public money on the
Rock the Harbor Harley-Davidson festival and leaving the organization that’s dedicated to promoting downtown in a financially precarious position.

    “If this was private industry, heads would be rolling,” Ald. Dan Becker said. “This was a financial debacle for Main Street. The rainy day fund is gone.

    “I think everybody should resign and reapply (for their positions).”

    Becker said he was especially frustrated because the mood at the Main Street Inc. board meeting just prior to the Common Council session was “jovial,” not serious, even as the group faces a budget shortfall of
$20,000 to $25,000 from Rock the Harbor.

    Becker wasn’t the only alderman calling for change.
