There is a very easy and fast way to communicate with the City of Los Angeles, if you have problems in your neighborhood with trees, sidewalks, bulky items that need to be picked up, graffiti removal, pot holes, etc.
MyLA311 can be downloaded to your smart phone by going tohttp://www.lacity.org/MyLA311/index.htm. The app will make it easy for people to take photos of problems and send them directly to the city. The GPS feature in the phone will give the city the exact location and time the photo was taken. If you don’t have the app on your smart phone, you can still call 311 to report a problem.
