These additional hiring hall staff are supplementing crews working on a variety of projects including
Complete Streets, Vision Zero concrete work, the Sidewalk Repair Program, and the Crenshaw

StreetsLA continues to utilize hiring hall employees and needs to move funding accordingly to cover
hiring hall payroll expenditures.
