President Barack Obama's recent campaign stop and overnight stay left behind a bill that Fairlawn's mayor doesn't want going to the taxpayers.
President Obama's arrival and one-night stay at a Fairlawn hotel cost the city about $34,000 according to Mayor Bill Roth.
Roth says he's sending the bill to those who he believes should pay.
"We going to send it on both to the Obama campaign and to the Democratic National Committee," Roth said.
"Hopefully we do get some payment, realistically it's impossible to tell."
The bill includes $12,000 in police overtime, along with manpower for set-up ringing up for the president's arrival at about $2,800. The city also had to purchase materials and equipment in preparation. Manpower from the city's fire department is included on the tab at about $5,000.
Roth says he's honored to have the President and any other candidate visit his town, but he reiterated that it's difficult to maintain the city's budget without advance notice.
"Regardless of what political party, if office holders come in or the present other office holders in municipalities have to incur costs, because of those visits, and they're purely election trips, then frankly I don't think the taxpayers should have to subsidize that," Roth said.
