There are so many things that are run terribly that we all complain about constantly, so I like to point out when something is actually run well. I try to leave reviews for exceptional service, and I’d like to point out two departments run by Los Angeles that are incredibly reliable and easy to get help from.
1. Sanitation services. 4 of our blue and green bins have had broken and cracked lids for ages. I called 311 on Wednesday, and today someone came, replaced the lids with new ones. It was a 5 minute phone call.
2. Vector Disease Control. I’ve mentioned this before and I’ll say it again. Every year when I start to get bitten by mosquitos, I call (310) 915-7370 and they call me back and send someone to check the area all within 24-48 hours.

He grew up in LA in Pico/Robertson and lives here with his wife and daughter. He helped clean up the area by adding the dozens of trash cans that can still be seen from Roxbury to La Cienega. He can be found with his family enjoying his passions: his multitude of friends, movies, poker and traveling.
