EUGENE, OR (AP) -

The city of Eugene plans to the bill the Donald Trump campaign nearly $100,000 to pay for costs associated with last month's visit.

Police Chief Pete Kerns said in an email Wednesday that overtime compensation for police officers totaled $78,000 while firefighters and other city employees racked up another $10,000 in OT.

Meals and other expenses for the more than 170 officers assigned to the rally cost the city another $4,500. It all adds up to $92,300.

Police made no arrests at the May 6 rally, but Kerns says the challenges of providing security were "unique and unlike any we've seen."

Campaigns are not obligated to reimburse cities for the costs of providing security. Kerns says if Trump does pay, the money would be deposited into the city's general fund.
