Beginning Wednesday, National City residents can use a mobile and computer application to report potholes and other neighborhood problems, or to request city services.
“National City Connect” uses GPS to recognizing a reporting person’s location, provides a menu of common concerns and helps users communicate with city departments. The app will also accept photographs.
“This program offers a great way for residents to interact with government, report issues, offer feedback and get responses from the city in an entirely new way,” said City Manager Leslie Deese. “Our hope is that residents will become empowered by National City Connect and ultimately feel more responsible for the well-being of their city.”
The app — available for the iPhone and Android devices — also allows residents to comment on and vote to fix problems submitted by neighbors, receive notifications about issues in their neighborhood and follow the progress of service requests.
