Officials in the tiny town of Farmington say they're "grateful" that GOP presidential Donald Trump finally paid a bill for police overtime at a January rally.

The Concord Monitor reports that Trump's payment for the roughly $9,500 bill came after months of silence.

Farmington Town Administrator Arthur Cappello said that the Trump rally used up about 30 percent of the town's police overtime budget.

The newspaper reported that Trump's campaign had informed the town's business administrator in January that police should bill the Secret Service, not the campaign. Trump's bill arrived in mid-September.

Trump campaign representatives did not immediately respond to the newspaper's request for comment.
