DETROIT (AP) — The city of Detroit has launched a cellphone application that will make it easier for residents to file complaints about infrastructure.
The app released Wednesday is available free from Google Play and Apple Store.
Mayor Mike Duggan, Chief Information Officer Beth Niblock and other city department leaders released details on the “Improve Detroit” mobile app at a news conference Wednesday morning.
The program allows residents to report issues such as potholes, broken water mains and malfunctioning traffic signals through their smartphones.
Duggan’s office says the app is part of his effort to make city government more accessible and responsive to residents.
