    "There was supposed to be no fees"

    Hello!

    Is this sentence correct to any extent?
    "Many of us had little or no money, because there was supposed to be no additional fees"

    Thank you in advance!

    Re: "There was supposed to be no fees"

    I don't see the logical connection between the clauses. Grammatically, it would be correct if you replaced was with were.
