New App Connects Residents to City Hall
Omaha - Mayor Jim Suttle introduced a new app for smart phones that allows Omaha residents to directly contact the city about problems they see.
The city paid $5,000 to develop it and used money from attrition.
Here's some information about it sent out by the Mayor's office:"The Omaha Mobile App provides a simple and intuitive platform empowering residents to identify civic issues (public safety, quality of life, environmental issues, etc.) and report them to City Hall for quick resolution. It uses geo-tagging technology to automatically provide the problem’s location, simplifying the reporting process for users while increasing the reliability of report location for the service crews.
Through the Omaha Mobile App, users will be able to report problems for the city to address, including:
· Abandoned bicycles and vehicles
· Deceased animals
· Bulky items
· Illegal dumping
· Broken sidewalks
· Overgrown trees
The application is available free of charge via iTunes or the Google Play Store and is available on all platforms.":
