NEW ORLEANS (AP) - New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu will once again be toasting Carnival royalty from in front of Gallier Hall this year.

The New Orleans Advocate reports (https://bit.ly/1PVD7ch ) reports that renovations have strengthened the building’s crumbling façade.

The reviewing stands in front of the historic building were scrapped last year after a piece of stone cornice came loose and fell onto the steps below. City officials moved to the other side of the street to salute each monarch while the repairs were made.

The move was expected to last through this parade season. But, said Cedric Grant, who oversees all infrastructure and capital projects for the city, says work on the building wrapped up early.
