Jenny gets scalped

The City of Pikeville, owners of the building formerly known as Jenny Wiley Theater, gave the boot to the theatre, hired away the theatre manager and created their own entity, called Appalachian Center for the Arts. The city asked for financial information from the former theatre board and was unable to obtain accurate information. The city had a right to do so as they are giving tax dollars to the theatre each year and the city requires accountability for the tax dollars given, like any responsible taxing agency. We also submitted an open records request to the theatre to see how much money they have, what they are spending it on and if all the checks and balances have been met. That was two weeks ago and, to date, we still have not received any financial information on the theatre.
