CELEBRATORY COSTS: Pittsburgh Public Safety Dir Michael Huss said that the city "spent $79,500 to deploy 258 police officers and legions of clean-up crews" for the Steelers Super Bowl XLIII victory parade, which drew an estimated 350,000 people on Tuesday. In Pittsburgh, Jeremy Boren notes the Steelers "did not contribute any money, and the team did not return a call seeking comment." After the team's win Sunday, fans "flooded city streets," and costs were "higher in part because of overtime shifts and use of police, firefighters and other personnel." Huss said that the money to "cover both celebrations will come from an annual allocation the state gives Pittsburgh to host 'regional events'" (Pittsburgh TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 2/5).
