Tsarnaev security funds OK’d by state Senate

Worcester would receive $47,000

The state Senate has allocated $47,000 in a spending bill to reimburse the city of Worcester for police costs associated with security at the Graham Putnam & Mahoney Funeral Parlors last month when the body of alleged Boston Marathon bomber Tamerlan Tsarnaev was being kept there awaiting burial.

Senator Michael O. Moore, a Millbury Democrat, filed the amendment to a $127 million supplemental spending bill to provide reimbursement for five days of police details.

The bill also would allocate $200,000 to provide home modifications and moving expenses for victims of the Marathon bombings who have either lost a limb or the use of a limb as a result. Other funding in the bill would ensure that the family of slain Massachusetts Institute of Technology police officer Sean Collier is eligible for line-of-duty benefits.

Worcester police dealt with protesters, some of whom stood vigil and held signs outside the Main Street funeral home over several days, while public officials and Tsarnaev’s relatives searched for a burial site.

Worcester Police Chief Gary J. Gemme said at the time that police details at the site were averaging $10,000 per day. The body was ultimately transported to a site in Doswell, Va.

The supplemental spending bill also provides money to cover the costs of recent elections, additional jail expenses, and snow removal.

House and Senate negotiators must still agree on a final bill.
