MAYOR ERIC GARCETTI
CITY OF LOS ANGELES
MAYOR GARCETTI EVENTS FOR TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 3
Mayor Eric Garcetti will present his second Mayor’s Civic Innovation Award to LA Bureau of Engineering Survey Party Chief John Tosto. Tosto used off-the-shelf mobile technology, Google Earth, and a bike to make improvements to 7 miles on bike path along the LA River in just a few days, a project that would have taken a team of 3 with traditional survey equipment several weeks and at great expense to taxpayers. Additionally, this scalable solution will be rolled-out citywide to map and monitor maintenance holes after road work, saving multiple trips and staff hours.
Mayor Garcetti’s back to basics agenda aims to use smart technology and creative problem solving to deliver better and faster city services to Angelenos and make City Hall work better. He created his Civic Innovation Award to be presented to city employees who embody this mission with new solutions to old problems, saving time and tax payer dollars.
