SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City Council members are not happy with the way a popular recreation center has been doing business. They claimed the center has given away over $100,000.

The Sorenson Multi-Cultural Center was supposed to collect over $154,000 for their services since January for things like their Junior Jazz program. But according to the Salt Lake Tribune, the center has taken in less than $54,000.

Council members said they just recently found out about the center's practice of reducing fees for families, depending on their size and income. They claimed the practice wasn't fair to other customers.

Some volunteers at the center, however, said this has been going on for at least a decade. They questioned council members' claims that they just learned about it.

According to the Tribune, an audit is likely.
