Our final category in the Public Works Week contest pertained to the unusual or exciting things you (or your crews) might encounter as they’re in the field. We’ve all heard stories, right? Well this submission is quite the visual and probably involved quite a lot of cleanup time!

We love how many of you built days into your week to share your operations with citizens. What better way for them to learn what Public Works is all about? So many things in our daily lives are under your care and supervision and many of us take them for granted. This next honoree has big plans for celebrating today, May 20th. In fact, we received two submissions from this agency – what pride in their department!
If you have plans to celebrate and share your work with your citizens, send us your photos! We’d love to share them.
Join us in wishing this agency a Happy City Works Day!
We’re celebrating the Biggest Success of one of Lucity’s public works champions. The second day of our Public Works Week Contest highlights an accomplishment many years in the making, and actually involves two Lucity clients. Their devotion to their customers and the environment played a key role in this massive undertaking. You’ll all recognize and appreciate the amount of effort and dedication this goal must have presented. But this agency is always willing to rise to the occasion. Lucity Senior Implementation Specialist Matt Miner (@LucityMatt) says the City is “ready and willing to seek out, or even create, the best solution. They’re quick to adopt new processes when there is a promise of enhanced productivity.”
Join us in thanking and congratulating our friends in the Northwest for this amazing accomplishment! Continue reading

Lucity was well represented for our perennial trek to the Esri User Conference (UC) convened July 14-18, 2014 in San Diego, CA. Nicole Schmidt, P.E. (Product Manager) and Luke Savage, GISP (Client Services Consultant) focused their time attending technical sessions and meetings, including getting together for our Gold Tier Partner discussions with Esri’s Seth Tribbey (Partner Manager) and MD Huq (Technical Advisor). Chris Crupi (West Region Manager), Joel Knight, P.E. (East Region Manager), and Jim Graham, P.E. (Chief Operating Officer) staffed our booth at the GIS Solutions EXPO, where they met prospective customers/partners and connected with friends from our current customer/partner community.
We were excited to support the presentation efforts of Rogelio Matta, a Lucity Client Advisory Board member and Senior Administrative Analyst with the City of Fontana, CA – a longtime Lucity customer. At one of the many technical sessions/workshops, Rogelio discussed how the City is utilizing Lucity and Esri solutions together to track water consumption for park irrigation, with the goal of saving the City significant (thousands, and perhaps millions) of dollars – a particularly apt topic in drought-stricken southern California.
Lucity also sponsored some UC-related events hosted by Esri applicable to our target market interests, including the Water User Group Pool Party and Public Works Special Interest Group (SIG) meeting.
