Identifying opportunities to improve operations and reduce costs
Berkshire Advisors performed a management review of all Culver City Departments including the following functions: police, fire, public works, parks and recreation, finance, treasury, transportation, fleet maintenance, building maintenance, and personnel. Numerous opportunities to improve operations and reduce costs were identified. For the most part, the recommendations focused on steps the City should take to streamline organizational structure, modify work processes, improve scheduling practices, ensure work is done by staff with appropriate skills, make more effective use of technology, and adjust the size of work crews.
