Fairlawn Mayor Bill Roth plans to send President Barack Obama a bill after his costly visit to the city last week.
Roth said special security was needed at the Hilton on West Market Street during the president's stay at the hotel including EMS and officers from surrounding communities.
"Economically, for the Hilton and some of the area, it was a plus and it's also a honor to have any president visit," said Roth. "But the reality is, it's also costs that local governments have to bear and those are security costs."
Fairlawn Tracking Costs After President's Visit by Amani Abraham
Extra security is normal for a president on the campaign trail, but Roth says he plans to start tracking the costs and sending bills to each of the candidates who choose to stay in the city.
"We don't care what party the person is from, but when you have these types of visits, essentially campaign visits, we are going to keep track of the expenses that we have to run up that are stemming from the visits. We are going to send the bills to their respective campaign committees," said Roth.
Roth expects to learn the total cost of the visit sometime next week.
