In fall of 2015, an effort to clean and organize the storage facilities in Denver’s East Parks district started. Both Oxana Trotsenko and Adam Smith set a course for a more ordered working environment that not only helped City staff be more efficient, yet also created a safer area for work to be done. By decreasing the amount of time that is spent looking for tools and by knowing the stock levels of inventory in real time, the East Parks district has been able to create a working environment where parks employees feel more empowered to effect positive change for the City. Their efforts have saved their department $162,342.92 in soft and hard dollars!
We are so exceptionally proud of the great work that Adam and his team have done over the course of only a few months. Denver is fortunate to have some of the most beautiful parks in the country, so it should be no surprise that those parks are tended to by such innovative and forward moving individuals.
Thank you for keeping our parks so wonderful from the inside out!
