About Public Works Liaisons

Public Works Liaisons serve as the primary point of contact for their Neighborhood Councils on the Clean Streets Initiative, which was announced by Mayor Eric Garcetti on April 23, 2015. Focused on creating a cleaner and more livable city, the Clean Streets Initiative provides funding for additional trash bins, a third Clean Streets Strike Team, the development of a cleanliness assessment system, and increased enforcement of illegal dumping. A key component to the success of the Clean Streets Initiative is a coordinated and robust public engagement campaign, which includes Liaisons working in partnership with the Mayor’s Office, Council Offices, and the Department of Public Works, and stakeholders to organize clean ups, increase 311 reporting in their area, and engage local stakeholders on how to maintain street cleanliness. Liaisons receive communication from the Department of Public Works regarding legislation, programs, and meetings with staff. For more information to go www.empowerla.org/publicworksliaisons/
