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

Hate to tell CSU this, but Obama isn’t in the habit of reimbursing venues for their costs.  That’s why some schools are turning down his visits.
