Joe Jackson and an Illinois-based musical group charged the city of Gary $5,000 to attend a memorial last month for Jackson’s son, the late pop star Michael Jackson, records released Thursday show.

It isn’t clear if Gary has paid the bill yet, but a claim form released by City Hall indicates the money will be split between Jackson, Marshall Thompson and the Chi-Lites, which list an address in Midlothian, Ill.

Overall, the preliminary account of the cost of a hometown memorial for Michael Jackson at the U.S. Steel Yard baseball stadium indicates the costs exceeded income by about $3,000.

City spokeswoman LaLosa Burns, though, said those figures could change as bills and donations continue to arrive. Mayor Rudy Clay, meanwhile, is confident Gary will profit from the event once all the donations are counted.

“It turned out beautiful and great and we’re not using taxpayers’ money,” Clay said, “so we should be given a blue ribbon for prudence.”
