Reflecting on 2018, it was a year of recovery and resiliency. More than a year after Harvey, city employees are still helping Houston recover from storm damage. At the same time, we continue to work toward sustainable solutions to make our city stronger —  through emergency services and public safety, housing, planning, neighborhood outreach and health services, drainage, debris removal and more. But life goes on, and so do the everyday services we provide. 

As always, City Savvy aims to capture a snapshot of the city at work. Here are a few City Savvy stories you might have missed over the last year:
