Missoula Seeks $13K Reimbursement for Costs During Trump Rally
You may remember that Donald Trump came to town last week. It was kind of a big deal. It also meant a whole lot of extra work for Missoula County, which had to pay for extra security and helping to prepare and clean the venue.
Now, Missoula is looking to get some of that money back. The town has sent Matt Rosendale's campaign a letter seeking reimbursement for the funds the town put into the Trump Rally. That includes roughly $11,200 for costs including overtime incurred by the Missoula County Sheriff's Office, and another $1800 or so from the Office of Emergency Management. All told, the county is requesting around $13,000.
And honestly, that doesn't seem like a whole lot of money, considering how massive the event was. By comparison, Trump's visit to Great Falls in July cost around $80,000. And Billings sought to get $45,000 reimbursed for Trump's visit in September, to which Rosendale's campaign never responded. Will Missoula have more luck?
