New Orleans' Mayor LaToya Cantrell says the city is spending thousands of dollars to respond to the partial collapse of the Hard Rock Hotel.
Mayor Cantrell stated in a news conference Monday that the city has been spending nearly $400,000 a day for the collapse.
The Hard Rock Hotel on the edge of the French Quarter was under construction when part of it collapsed.
Cantrell says the enormous figure doesn't include the hit to the city's economy, however, she intends to seek reimbursement from the "responsible party."
