Thurmont police Chief Greg Eyler said his department had to buy extra equipment and restrict leave for his officers. It will cost around $10,000.
The G8 Summit next week in Thurmont will bring in world leaders, international media, protesters and the local police is getting ready.
Thurmont police Chief Greg Eyler said his department had to buy extra equipment and restrict leave for his officers.
"We will have overtime hours, plus our regular hours worked and then we also will look at vehicle usage and equipment that may need to purchase at the time and all that is coming out of the town of Thurmont's budget. The Federal Government, we had a meeting, I think our first initial meeting, is that there is no funding for anybody," Eyler said.
Eyler said the price tag to the town of Thurmont for the G-8 is $10,000.
"We going to have to buy more barrier tape, flares, some technology equipment, which is minimal, some more double cuffs and cuff cutters and carriers," Eyler said.
He first found out about Camp David hosting the summit two months ago. Since that time Eyler has participated in extensive planning for next week's event.
