EDISON - Officials in Union County have canceled their annual MusicFest.
Last year, Kane in Your Corner investigated concerns about how much the annual event might be costing taxpayers. Following our report, an investigation by the Union County Prosecutor's Office concluded the event was plagued by shoddy bookkeeping.
Tina Renna of Union County Watchdog, a citizen activist group, is glad the event is canceled. "What happened with Music Fest is beyond Music Fest itself," Renna says. "It's the way the government conducted the business of it. There was no accountability so it shouldn't exist."
