The New Orleans City Council Budget Committee is set to review costs of two major accidents — the collapse of the partially built Hard Rock Hotel in October and the December cyber attack on city computers.

A report submitted to the committee says the cyberattack cost the city more than $7 million with unknown future expenses. The Hard Rock response so far has cost more than $11 million.

The Budget Committee meeting will be held in the City Council Chamber at 10 a.m.
