The Los Angeles Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates have created a Service Report Card for citizens of Los Angeles to rate their local City Services. Every community is different and every community has their own set of problem areas. Here is your chance to let the Mayor’s office, Los Angeles City Council and the City Hall Departments know exactly what matters to you the most!
With over 1300 responses to the survey so far, the Budget Advocates have collected more than a thousand more responses than the Mayor’s own Department of Budget and Innovation this year. As elected officials to the City of Los Angeles, the NC Budget Advocates represent each and every stakeholder in the City of Los Angeles. This survey is designed to help pinpoint the problem areas in our city as well as highlight the areas that are successful.
So far the survey has shown high scores citywide in fire protection and ambulance response times. Library services are also scoring high citywide. Bulky Item pickup shows better than average scores thanks to the success of the LA311 application.
The problem areas the survey has begun to highlight are of no surprise to the Budget Advocates. Homeless services are in desperate need citywide as well as transportation upgrades and job opportunities. Trees aren’t being watered, the infrastructure is crumbling and there is a lack of communication between stakeholders and their City Councilmembers.
The Neighborhood Council Budget Advocates want to help increase the quality of life in Los Angeles and will continue to fight for you! Visit their website at NCBALA.com.
