TROY, Ohio (WDTN) - After a long weekend at The Gentleman of the Road Stopover Tour in Troy, police and fire crews are happy to be back to business as usual.
Before the music festival, which featured the group Mumford and Sons, first responders expressed concern about staffing and how they would handle the temporary population increase.
“Everyone thought early on, and I was the same way, that this was going to be a disaster. It was going be a nightmare, but the sky didn't fall,” said Chief Chris Boehringer with the Troy Fire Department.
The festival was expected to bring 40,000 people to town, doubling Troy's population for the weekend.
2 NEWS checked and from Thursday afternoon to Sunday evening, police had 71 calls for service inside the festival. The fire department had 151.
Most of the calls were minor, involving intoxicated people or heat illnesses.
According to Troy city officials the concert promoter was paying for all of the overtime costs from police and fire crews. That work was estimated to cost $100,000.
