I haven’t heard much about this in the press, but on March 29 San Francisco launched the 311 customer service center. Any SF based phone calling 311 will receive assistance from a customer service agent 24/7. The folks on the other end of 311 will connect you with the right number for the city service you are looking for. Given that there are over 2,300 published numbers for city departments, this is pretty awesome. Need a tree removed? Driveway blocked? Dog on the loose? You can fix it all with one simple call to 3-1-1.
