City officials and city employees are among those coming together today to celebrate that Tyler has exceeded $5 million in savings through the Lean Six Sigma Program.

Tyler Senior Public Relations Specialist Serena Butcher said Lean Six Sigma identifies waste and variation to save the city time and money. The goal, she said, is for the city to be more efficient and provide better customer service.

Various booths are set up at the Rose Garden Center this morning with information on Lean Six Sigma projects. The program launched in 2009.

"In five short years, we have changed the culture of how we look at jobs at city hall," Mayor Barbara Bass told attendees.
