According to Envista's SVP Brad Steer, "We are proud to have the City of Boston in our pilot program because of its long-standing leadership in the Public Works arena.

According to Joanne Massaro, Commissioner of Boston's Public Works Department, "In the past several years, we've made great progress in coordinating our project schedules with utility companies and contractors.
