Delia Gonçalves of WUSA TV reports on Montgomery County wanting more money from the USGA for unanticipated overtime pay from this year's U.S. Open at Congressional.
The overall cost of Police and Fire overtime was $747,560 but the US Golf Association only reimbursed the county 10% leaving a balance of $678,265.
"I thought it was a fair deal, was it the best deal? We'll never know the answer to that," said the county's Chief Administrative Officer Tom Street.
"Other jurisdictions (who held prior U.S. Opens) had a better percentage," said Committee Chair Phil Andrews, "that's a whole lot of money and we're in a tough economic time. We need to get a better reimbursement rate because that money could have gone to some valuable programs."
