App Allows Fort Collins Residents To Report Code Violations
FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) – People in Fort Collins now have a much easier way to report everything from graffiti to pot holes — there is an app for that.
The city says communicating with smartphones is much more efficient.
The application is call Access Fort Collins. It’s set up so once the app is opened the user can take a picture. Once the picture is taken the user needs to describe the picture as a pot hole, rubbish or trash, graffiti, and several other options.
The picture and the GPS location are sent to the proper department at the city.
Since it deals with code violations, some residents could be reported for things such as not shoveling a sidewalk in a timely manner.
Right now the app is only available on the iPhone. The city hopes to have the app available for Droid phones around Jan. 1.
