RHINEBECK, N.Y. (AP) Town officials in the Hudson Valley bracing for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding this weekend approved spending $2,500 for extra police coverage.

The Rhinebeck Town Council authorized the spending during a meeting Monday.

Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, is expected to marry investment banker Marc Mezvinsky on a private estate on the river on Saturday.

The Clintons have refused to disclose the location wedding. But Rhinebeck Supervisor Thomas Traudt said based on his conversations with state and county police, the extra service this weekend will be helpful.

One resident at the council meeting shouted that the extra expenses should be paid for by the father of the bride.
