S. Florida county wants reimbursement for protecting Trump

December 20, 2016 - 10:59 AM

PALM BEACH, Fla. - A South Florida county wants to be reimbursed for the cost of protecting President-elect Donald Trump at his Palm Beach oceanfront estate.

The Palm Beach Post reports (http://bit.ly/2ho52UH) that the county is sending a letter to Congressional members asking for help in getting reimbursed for resources devoted to securing Mar-a-Lago, Trump's Palm Beach mansion.

County Administrator Verdenia Baker said when Trump visited in Thanksgiving, it cost an estimated $250,000.

The president-elect is spending Christmas in Palm Beach.

Officials say they anticipate it will be a significant fiscal impact over the next four years and feels the federal government should reimburse the county's taxpayers for the cost.
