The New Orleans Downtown Development District praised the efforts of Block by Block’s Clean Team on their hard work and dedication to the clean-up not just before and after, but during, the 2012 Mardi Gras festivities. DDD President and CEO, Kurt Weigle, stated, “This was our best year yet!”
Since 2007, Block by Block has served the DDD which is responsible for the New Orleans Central Business District. During the Mardi Gras season, Block by Block expands the usual 20-person team to nearly 60 in support of the substantial clean-up efforts.
“Once again, I would like to thank and commend the entire Block by Block team for its hard work. Special kudos to the team leaders for stepping up! It would not have been as smooth without their effort and the rest of the regular crew,” said Richard McCall, Director of Operations.
