The city invoiced her for city services and she paid the next day, the Sun-Times reports.
How much? The correct answer is "C. 54,832."
Really? If that seems a little low, here is how the bill was broken down, according to the paper
The Office of Emergency Management and Communications ran up the biggest tab -- $28,277 -- for traffic control aides Sept. 7-9. Other bills include: $12,014 from the Police Department, mostly to
pay off-duty officers; $7,075 from the Fire Department for "safety
officers for buildings on Michigan"; $6,163 from the Bureau of
Electricity to "remove traffic signals" and $1,306 from the Streets and
Sanitation Department to put up barricades.
Of course, that doesn't include various indirect costs, such as rerouting CTA buses and time lost for people caught in the detours.
