There are simple reforms and common sense solutions to increase efficiency and help reduce needless DWP rate hikes. I believe there are relatively easy changes to be made to the DWP that will increase the City’s ability to provide high quality services at a fair cost to its residents.

For Example:

DWP salaries for new hires should be comparable to L.A City salaries for the same jobs in other City departments (Bloomberg News reported that DWP salaries are as much as 40% higher than other departments for the same job).

Giving DWP employees significantly higher wages than other City workers for doing the same job makes about much sense as tearing down the Convention Center and forever limiting its square-footage potential in exchange for a football stadium when the NFL has not even agreed to move a team to LA.

Additional DWP reform proposals coming soon.
