    I know in the early 2000 I was helping with parking at a Convention. The city that we was in required the WT to either pay the police (which was like $4000) or hire 'certified' individuals to help with the expected traffic. We were not allowed to just have brothers directing public traffic. If I remember right, we spent about $500/day for 2 officer for hire to help 3 hours in the morning and 3 hours in the evening. I also believe they put an ad in the local papers for it. What I do find interesting is them using Facebook.
