This just in from Dallas City Hall: One week after last week's Dallas Mavericks victory parade rolled from the Dallas Convention Center to the American Airlines Center, the city's done totaled up the receipts and is ready to submit an invoice to Mark Cuban, who said he's happy to pay for the whole shebang.

So, let's see: 540 officers will run you $270,715. Exactly 132 Fire-Rescue workers (firefighters and paramedics) totals up to $54,002. Add in clean-up at 'round $2,300 and $13,000 to use the convention center and other city services (including Office of Emergency Management, the Public Information Office and City Attorney's Office, among others) ... and that'll run you right at $340,947, sir. Why, a regular bargain. Assistant City Manager Ryan Evans's memo to council follows. (Update at 5:29 p.m.: Cuban tells Randy Galloway, "I got off cheap.") Mavs Parade Memo

Cuban knew he had pledge of support when he agreed to pay tab.Maybe he or a business minded person should become City Manager.

With all the sponsorships and ads I saw, isn't Cuban going to make money on this thing?

I'm guessing Cuban got Budweiser to pitch in for a good portion of that, hence their prominent involvement.

I would like to use my Groupon for payment: $50 for $340,957 worth of City of Dallas services.

Only $2,300 for clean-up doesn't sound right.  I would suspect that the actual cost of clean-up was much, much higher.

Well, that's awful kind. But, really ... I'm pretty sure it was randomly generated.

Evans says when it came to clean-up, "They paid for it themselves." The Mavericks also covered "anything associated with the parade itself -- the trucks, the floats, the clean-up, all the stuff." The Sanitation and PW stuff stemmed from the city having to empty a few of its dumpsters and downtown wastebaskets, etc.

Actually, the city provided a spreadsheet that says Sanitation only ran $843; Public Works, an additional $1,500. I've got calls into Librio and Evans for more precise breakdowns.

Ok, that explains it.  When are we going to talk about the 2013 bond issue again?
