ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - The city of Albuquerque is three months late in posting four of last year’s most expensive employee trips to its transparency website.

The Albuquerque Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1I4YD6z) the city spent about $3,400 to send four Cultural Services Department employees to the New Orleans Jazz Fest in April.

City employees have a week from the day they return from their trips to file taxpayer-funded travel expenses with the city clerk.

Chief administrative officer Rob Perry says having the city clerk operate the website means some expenses are incorrectly entered or added to the system late.

He said the city is changing over to a software program that will input all travel-related expenses automatically.
