Foster not sweating bill for RNC kickoff party

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

Despite threats of a big bill, St. Petersburg taxpayers will only be on the hook for $29,000 for the RNC kickoff party at the Trop in August.

Mayor Bill Foster originally estimated that the city would be short more than half a million dollars, but the mayor says that was before several agreements were signed with Tampa.

The federal government gave Tampa a $50 million grant to host the RNC. Mayor Foster believes the money from Tampa will cover all the bills except for some police and fire overtime pay.
