On January 12th, the City unveiled “Fix It! Portland.”, a mobile app for Portlanders to report quality of life concerns.
Fix It! Portland allows citizens to report a variety of issues, such as potholes, streetlight outages, and snowplowing requests from their smartphone, as well as from the City of Portland website. These concerns are submitted directly to the City where they are then routed and assigned automatically based on the location and type of the problem.
“With a few clicks on your smartphone, anyone can now photograph, map, and report issues,” said Mayor Michael Brennan.
Citizens who report issues will receive an automated response letting them know that their issue has been received. Once an issue has been assigned, another email will be sent to provide a status update. Issues will be completed based on priority-level and budget status.
Fix It! Portland. can be downloaded through Apple and Android App Stores or accessed directly from the City website at www.portlandmaine.gov/fixitportland.
