On Oct. 8, Mayor Eric Garcetti detailed his work to reorganize and refocus the mayor’s office and city departments during his first 100 days in office.
In his first 100 days in office Garcetti cut the mayor’s office from more than a dozen deputy mayors to four. He also required every department manager to reapply for their job.
Garcetti also discussed his work on DWP reform.
In addition, Garcetti previewed a beta version of his new performance tracking website, www.lamayor.org/performance, which identifies priorities for city departments and their functions and tracks progress toward them.
Mayor Garcetti also discussed his work to bring City Hall closer to Angelenos by deploying new tools to directly interact with constituents including the hashtag #LAMayor, the Mayor’s Help Desk in City Hall, Van Nuys, and coming soon to South Los Angeles, as well as open office hours and door-to-door walks.
Mayor Garcetti spoke at the city’s automated traffic surveillance and control center, an example of city government using data to guide decision making and improve quality of life in our neighborhoods.
