Some agencies that committed resources to the event still are calculating the expense, and at least one of them intends to pursue reimbursement from the president's campaign.
The city of Fort Collins spent $101,260, mostly on police services during the president's overnight visit that included arrival at Fort Collins-Loveland Municipal Airport and an Aug. 28 campaign speech at Colorado State University before he departed from the airport the next morning.
"Maybe $20,000 of that was people that would have been working anyway, but were diverted to that assignment," city Controller and Assistant Finance Officer John Voss said, placing the added expense of the visit to the city at about $80,000.
He said the city does not intend to seek reimbursement, but CSU does, according to spokesman Kyle Henley.
