Moscow wants reimbursement for megaload policing costs

Here's a news item from the Associated Press: MOSCOW, Idaho (AP) — Moscow officials want a company transporting oil equipment for Exxon Mobil to pay $12,800 for police services. The Moscow-Pullman Daily News (http://bit.ly/mT5GWi) reports the costs are from police services from July to September. The city plans to submit weekly reimbursement requests to Mammoet as it transports the gear toward Alberta, Canada's oil sands. Moscow officials said Mammoet is getting better at notifying the city when a shipment is expected. Another is expected this week, with two more shipments next week. The shipments, originally slated for U.S. Highway 12, have diverted through Moscow on U.S. Highway 95 while a court challenge in Montana holds up transports on the original route. There have been protests by environmentalists on U.S. Highway 95, too, including an Aug. 25 incident when six people were arrested.
