President Trump’s visit to Springfield last month cost the city of Springfield $123,944.92.  At the Springfield City Council meeting Monday night, Springfield City Manager Jason Gage said costs break down to $12,707.02 for the airport; $924.55 for Emergency Communications; $2,013.96 for Environmental Services; $8831.78 for Fire; $819.38 for Parks; $82,305.87 for Police and $16,342.36 for Public Works.

According to Gage, the total may change a bit due to adjustments departments might make after reviewing payroll costing reports, but he doesn’t expect it to change much.
