Casper Hill, the media relations coordinator for the city, said Noor was informed Thursday the cost of the recount will be $7,000. 

If that amount in bond, cash or surety is filed in a timely fashion, the recount would occur on Nov. 28, with results being canvassed on Dec. 1.

When asked for comment on his request earlier this week, Noor cited a previous statement in which he alleged illegal voting behavior in the race.
