Fort Collins racks up costs related to Obama trip
FORT COLLINS — Colorado State University says it intends to bill President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign for costs associated with his speech on the Fort Collins campus Aug. 28.
Spokesman Kyle Henley didn’t immediately have a final tally of CSU’s costs.
The Coloradoan reports the city of Fort Collins spent $101,260 related to Obama’s visit, mostly on police services during the trip, which included arrival at Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport.
The Larimer County Sheriff’s Office estimated its costs at around $30,000 and says it won’t be reimbursed.
Fort Collins Controller and Assistant Finance Officer John Voss says the city hasn’t assessed the possible economic benefits of Obama’s trip
