Unsightly graffiti, hazardous sidewalks, leaking fire hydrants, broken fences, traffic light timing issues, and more. Cities scores a lot non-emergency issues they must manage each day and they rely on citizens to be their eyes and ears in the field to alert them of these issues. However, many residents don’t have the time or inclination to go through the bureaucratic rat’s nest of reporting these issues. Today, there’s a new app that lets residents submit city issues to their local government via their smartphone. Not only will the report be systematically directed to the correct department, but the app users can include details, photos, GPS positioning, and more to help mangers triage the complaint and work to address the issues more efficiently and effectively.
