Mayor John Brenner said York City is reviewing whether to charge the campaign of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain for services provided during McCain's recent campaign visit to the York Expo Center.

Brenner said he believes the city contributed about nine police officers to help manage McCain's visit to West Manchester Township on Tuesday. But the city will only send a bill if the officers were working overtime.

The campaign of Sen. Hillary Clinton paid a bill from the city after Clinton held an outdoor rally in Downtown York on a Saturday during the spring primary season, while Clinton was still pursuing the Democratic nomination for president.

The city also billed the campaign of President George W. Bush after he visited the city on a campaign stop several years ago, though that bill went unpaid.

Brenner said both of the visits cost the city significant dollars in staff overtime.
