Tripepi Smith has more than fulfilled our goals and objectives in terms of the technical aspects […]. You’ve brought us into the 21st century.”

“Rolling Hills Estates had so many positive programs and initiatives, and our cooperation with City Staff has helped spread this information to all corners of the community,” said Jon. “Watching the City’s engagement and following grow naturally has been rewarding. City Staff has a lot of excellent information to share and is dedicated to keeping residents aware and involved.”
