Elusive pillow fight organizers stymie DPW 

The Department of Public Works spent more than $35,000 between this year and last year’s expenses cleaning up the feathers and other detritus left behind by the flash mob Valentine’s Day Pillow Fight.

DPW officials are calling on organizers to apply for a permit and provide cleanup, security and portable toilets.

Of course, finding the organizers has been difficult. Despite a Web site, Facebook page and Twitter page, DPW hasn’t been able to lay the costs on anyone.

Officials said Friday they may forward a complaint to the City Attorney’s to find the organizers of the event. 2010 marked the fifth Pillow Fight event in San Francisco.

“Thirty–eight staff from Public Works were assigned to clean up after the unsanctioned event who were scheduled to keep busy downtown areas clean,” a DPW press release read.
