ExxonMobil's strategy of paring down some of its mega-loads and shipping them up through Idaho's panhandle may end up costing the oil conglomerate a bit more than expected.
The City of Moscow already announced its plans to bill the company hauling the oversized rigs for costs associated with escorting the loads. And now Latah County Sheriff Wayne Rausch says he wants to bill for his department's overtime costs.
Law enforcement has been necessary for the escorts since several protests have met the shipments as they rolled through downtown Moscow. Moscow Police said roughly 60 percent of its force has been needed to assist the shipments.
