Presidential candidates visiting the Gate City will continue to get a bill, but whether or not they will pay it remains to be seen. The Board of Aldermen’s administration affairs committee voted 5-1 to reject a proposal to prohibit the city from charging candidates for their visits. Campaign stops by President Barack Obama and Republican challenger Mitt Romney last November left the city with about $30,000 in police and fire overtime costs. The city has billed the campaigns, but has yet to be paid.
