Maybe part of the current economic crisis is caused by public money being wasted on things like over priced benches, $16000 to repair benches? With that money I could craft you beautiful magic benches that can take you to the moon.

I'm willing to bet the bathrooms needed some of these repairs prior to establishment of the Occupy camp.

Is there a single person who doesn't think the final bill will be around $100,000? Take out the government cost of business and elevated union wages, this estimate would be at least half. Use illegals from Portland's Day Labor Center and cut the estimate in half again.

It's already over that Andy.

'that doesn't include some $45,000 in staff and material costs spent during the occupation of the parks.'

If you're serious, I commend you for walking the talk.
But you need to kick some of yer pals in the ass still.

Yeah, I’m serious. It was on November 15 at 7:30 pm.

The highest price bench I just found on a quick search was 1900 bucks. I'm not saying that we should look at specific parts of this report where costs could be inflated a little, but maybe we should look at parts of this report where costs could be inflated a little.

I think it's absurd for them to be tallying the bathroom, sewers and LEAF raking as an Occupy cost. Same with the benches (btw, are they made of gold? One was broken beforehand and the benches were in fine shape.) Or graffiti. Subtract those costs and it seems that Occupy DID already pay for what damage they may have done.

oh pleeeease! We all have a right to occupy. I really don't feel as if it did anymore damage, as the damage the city wants to charge the tax payers for cleaning it up. Come on City of Portland. We are not fools, we can all see that you are trying to over charge for this and make it a huge deal, which it is not.

This figure does not include police overtime, which was approximately $1.29 million just for manning the 'Occupy' movement. I am aware that those supporting the movement will claim that the increased police presence was not necessary, but the movement has been anything but peaceful. However, if the officers were able to enforce the law, then the cost of overtime would be much lower.

Please wait...
