The City of Sandy Springs has taken one more step in opening the forms of communications between residents and city officials. Knowing that a majority of people prefer to communicate with their smart phones, Sandy Springs has launched a smart phone application, making it easier than ever to report a problem with the city. Instead of running over a pothole and making a mental note to submit a letter or make a phone call, you can snap a photo on the spot and submit it to the City on the spot. It’s as simple as that.
The application is called CoSSpotter, and it uses CitySourced technology to allow residents to identify public safety, quality of life and environmental issues and report them to City staff for quick resolution. It allows for immediate action, eliminating any chance you’ll forget to report the problem later. If you don’t know what issues to bring to the city’s attention, here are a few suggestions:
- Abandoned vehicles
- Illegal dumping
- Broken sidewalks
- Overgrown trees and vegetation
- Dead animals
The best news is that the application is completely free of charge. Just visit the City’s website at www.sandyspringsga.org/cosspotter to download it to your phone; it’s available for Blackberry, Android and iPhone. Also on the website, or through the application, you can monitor the progress of any issues that you previously reported.
