Taxpayers Paid for Ringtones, Games on Jacksonville Cellphones

Thehas 1,350 cell phones, and that does not include all of JSO's cell phones, which you also pay for.

The cell phone bill at City Hall is on average $80,000 a month. A 2009 cell phone audit found the city dropped its connection on a number of levels.

"We found out employees weren't sure what their plans were. What was included, excluded," said city Inspector General Pam Markham, who spent months reviewing bills.

The audit also found 86 cell phones that were paid for but not used, some for seven months, at a cost of $15,100.
