Chief Hayes: Why Post Falls Wants Ironman $$$

re: Memo sent by Post Falls Police Chief Cliff Hayes to Mayor Clay Larkin and City Council members today, defending his position that CDA Ironman should pay for Post Falls support

“As you are all aware, a local newspaper printed an editorial that criticized our City for requiring Ironman USA to reimburse our City for services provided during the bike race through Post Falls. I wanted to give you some information on what some of the other Cities that host Ironman events require. Please do not think that I am picking a fight with someone who buys ink by the barrel. I would like to give you information about Ironman events in other areas and cities.”

DFO: Cliff makes a good argument.
