Residents of Kelowna can now report problems such as potholes to city services faster by using a new mobile service.
"For example, if you see something in need of repair such as graffiti, just snap a photo with your smartphone and using our Mobile Service Request system you can notify the City immediately," says city performance improvement consultant, Clint McKenzie.
The city expects the service will make it easier for residents to request services while the photo and ability to select an exact location on a map will give staff specific information to guide prioritization of resources.
The mobile site kelowna.ca/mobileSR is compatible with smartphones and smart devices including iPhones, Androids, Blackberries, tablets and iPads.
