One of Pete Byron’s first jobs as mayor of Wildwood? Making sure everyone keeps tabs on how much President Donald Trump’s upcoming rally will cost the city.

The mayor — who was sworn in just days before hearing Trump would hold a rally in the Jersey Shore resort town — said the city does not have a budget for the event but has asked their first responder departments, along with the public works department to keep detailed accounts for the costs incurred.

The article goes on to state the following:

Byron said he does not see the costs being as high as some of the rallies held in bigger cities because of the limited access into Wildwood by way of the three roads in, along with the beach and ocean acting as a natural barrier behind the convention center, where the rally will be held on Jan. 28 at 7 p.m.

“Do I think that our taxpayers should foot the bill for this? Absolutely not,” he reportedly said.

“I will do my best to get a final tally, and I will certainly pass that on to the local Republican organization, and I hope that we get some sort of reimbursement for the event,” he continued.
