Dallas city officials who tallied up the cost for a parade celebrating the Mavericks' first NBA title last week say it came to $340,947.

City spokesman Frank Librio said Thursday the bill was sent straight to team owner Mark Cuban, who has agreed to pay promptly.

Cuban has said all along that he'd personally foot the bill for the parade celebrating the Mavs' NBA Finals victory over the Miami Heat.

According to the city's summary sheet, the largest expense, at $270,715, was for the 540-strong police presence. An additional 132 firefighters and paramedics on hand for emergencies cost $54,002. Clean-up was the smallest expense at $843.

The rest was spent on public works, Convention Center usage and various city services.

About 200,000 jubilant fans attended the downtown parade June 16th.
