SARASOTA, FL -- Sarasota Mayor Shannon Snyder is accusing his colleges of taking one to many frivolous trips. 

According to Mayor Snyder the latest trip occurred last weekend, with Commissioner Atwell and City Manager Barwin going to Nashville for a conference. But, officials say those trips are an opportunity to learn best practices to better govern the city.

Snyder disagrees, saying with the recent vote to raise taxes more effort needs to be done to cut wasteful spending.

Tonight on ABC 7 News at 6pm we breakdown the commissioners travel budget and get reaction to the accusations.
