"S.I. Yanks balked on bills, audit finds" NY Daily News 04/25/06

Maybe Hal Steinbrenner can ask for a subsidy from the city just like his daddy, George, does?

S.I. Yanks balked on bills, audit finds

NY Daily News, April 25, 2006

Their season hasn't even started yet, but the Staten Island Yankees took a pounding yesterday - in a city audit claiming the team owes $570,202 in unpaid utility costs and other bills.

The money is owed for electricity, sewer and water charges, Controller William Thompson said in the audit, who also smacked the team's methods of counting attendance, which determines how much rent it pays to the city for its stadium.

The team's majority owners are Stanley Getzler and his son, Josh. A 49% interest is held by Hal Steinbrenner, son of George Steinbrenner, principal owner of the New York Yankees.
