Highwire walker Nik Wallenda is apparently thumbing his nose at the City of Niagara Falls.
New York State legislation that paved the way for Wallenda's stunt last month required the City be reimbursed for providing public safety.
But Niagara Falls Mayor Paul Dyster said Wallenda still owes taxpayers more than $25,000 for overtime costs.
"A total cost for us. This is just public safety overtime stemming from the event itself," said Mayor Dyster.
Wallenda told the Buffalo News "it's just disgusting and sad [that Niagara Falls is asking for money.]"
