Mason City proposes city app to spot problems

Updated:

MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) -- Mason City residents who spot a problem may soon be able to take a picture of it and send it to City Hall to see about getting it fixed.

The Globe Gazette says the City Council on Tuesday will consider investing in a program called SeeClickFix to help connect citizens with government to address issues quickly.

City Administrator Brent Trout recommends an application that costs $2,400 a year and allows two administrative account users. He says it would be a good test of the program before opening it to all departments.

Pat Otto of Building and Neighborhood Services says it would be useful for reporting problems such garbage, potholes and street lights. She says the department gets about 2,000 complaints a year.
