The city-ordered investigation into whether Statesboro City Council members violated the Georgia Open Meetings Act during the tenure of former City Manager Frank Parker has cost roughly $27,500.

But that did not include two other bills, totaling $2,935, from Bryant Reporting Inc., a Vidalia-based court-reporting service.
