The Village of Essex Junction has purchased the service See Click Fix. This application provides a new way for citizens to quickly and easily report public works concerns using their smartphone or tablet. With this program, citizens will be able to take a picture of an issue, publically post it, and receive an automated notification when the issue has been resolved. See Click Fix is used in cities throughout the nation, and Essex Junction is excited to use this service to both increase citizen involvement and expedite the process of reporting public works issues.
You can download the app - see the See Click Fix box on the right our homepage or visit www.seeclickfix.com/essex-junction.
