The City of Dallas debuted a new 311 app for smart phones to report potholes, graffiti, litter and the like. See it, snap it, send it. It’s free and users can report and track complaints anonymously. It’s faster than making a phone call or reporting on a 311 website, because it bypasses call operators and goes directly to the appropriate city agency. The app has been downloaded 3,400 times so far since the beginning of September.
“We know people are proud of their neighborhoods, and when they download this app they’re going to be demonstrating that,” Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings said as he announced the app’s formal roll out.
