New York is expecting to receive at least $61 million in reimbursement from the federal government for providing security to President Trump and Trump Tower since last fall.As part of the proposed national bipartisan budget deal introduced Sunday evening, the government is expected to pay the city $20 million for costs incurred between Election Day and Inauguration Day and $41 million for all costs after Inauguration Day. This funding is in addition to the $7 million that was allocated last fall.New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill have lobbied the New York City Congressional Delegation over the past several months to seek reimbursement and also made several trips to Washington, D.C., to seek to secure the funding.“We are getting what we are owed,” de Blasio said. “That's good news for our city and the hardworking police officers faced with this unprecedented security challenge. We could not have done this without our congressional delegation, including U.S. Representatives Nita Lowey, Grace Meng, Jose Serrano, Dan Donovan and Carolyn Maloney. They worked tirelessly over the past several months to make sure these costs are paid for by the federal government.”According to figures provided by de Blasio on Monday morning, the city spent $24 million protecting Trump Tower and the first family from Election Day through Inauguration Day. It is estimated that the city spends, on average, $127,000 to $146,000 a day for the NYPD to protect the first family when Trump is not in town.Those costs are even higher when the President is in the city, when costs for the NYPD are estimated to hit $308,000 a day. Trump is coming to the city this week for the first time since his inauguration, and a string of protests against his policies are planned while he is in town.
