Smartphones Bringing Smart Government to a City Near You

  • Much as I hate to rain on this parade, it remains to be seen what impact (as in fixing the problems) the app will have. Like most California cities, LA is both broke, and broken. If it were doing its job, there wouldn’t be any need for the app, and the blow-back as the reported problems don’t get fixed is likely to be considerable.

      I agree with Andrew Allison. This means only a more direct means of ignoring people. I’ve read several times of groups of LA homeowners creating outside the law improvement districts to fund local infrastructure improvements funded by volunteer property assessments. Often without builidng permits.
      The LA municipal government is essentially disfunctional.
