I was listening to KLBJ 590AM in Austin, TX and heard that the City of Austin has to send in cleanup crews between 2AM and 4AM to pressure wash the sidewalks and the walls of city hall. "Occupy Wall Street" protesters are urinating on the walls of city hall and sidewalks. There were also stories about paint on the sidewalks and graffiti.
Taxpayers of already cash-strapped cities are now have to spend more money in providing cleanup crews and police protection.
In an article by Rob Port dated October 7, 2011, he points out that Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said that it has cost the NYPD $2 million in overtime to police the events.
