KYW: The cost of police overtime for game five of the World Series (parts one and two) was approaching $800,000 as of Wednesday night. But despite the city’s cash crunch, Mayor Nutter says he is not concerned. Philadelphia police officials say the cost of overtime for officers on Monday night was about $478,000, and would be about $300,000 for the resumption of game five. It’ll be even higher should a parade be scheduled. Mayor Nutter says this can’t be avoided: “We’re always concerned about overtime, but there are some things you just have to deal with as a city when we have these kinds of activities.” MORE
