Costs to city of Newark for Democracy Day:
? Advertisement requirement satisfied by announcing event on website a month in advance and emailing announcement to area media at the same time. This is free.
? Held as an extra city council meeting once a year, same time frame, council chambers. Cost is turning on the lights one more day per year.
? Mayor required to mail letters to Newark's state and federal representatives of which there are 5. Cost is 5 stamps, 5 envelopes, and 5 sheets of paper.
? We have ascertained there has been no security seen at Democracy Days attended by the Move to Amend state rep. He has been to all except Defiance. If it is determined security is needed, it would be the same as a council meeting, which is one policeman. The City of Newark has historically provided security to council and committees meetings in two ways, either a reserve officer or an on-duty patrol officer; neither require additional monies. If the need should arise, the city reserves the right to utilize special duty (extra-pay officers) at an approximate cost of $100 per officer depending on the length of the meeting. We anticipate the length of the Democracy Day Meeting to be about the same as the average council meeting, 2-4 hours tops, but probably closer to 2 -2.5 hours.
We endorse Move to Amend. Paid for by Democracy Day-Newark.
