PEORIA, AZ - The City of Peoria has released a new smartphone application aimed toward helping residents connect with officials about needs in the community.
The "Peoria Reporter " helps users easily provide the city with maintenance or non-emergency help requests, like graffiti, potholes, dead animals, signage, illegal parking, environmental issues and more, according to Peoria.
When the app is used, the user can select a photo from his or her phone and choose a problem they want to submit. The app automatically draws in a GPS location for the issue through the phone's location device.
When the problem is submitted, the appropriate city department will see the entry and can fix the problem.
The application is available for free download to iPhone and Android customers, and can also be utilized online without the app via the internet .
The app was created to give citizens an easier way to report concerns in their community. The main service, "City Sourced ," is available in other cities around the country as well.
