I wonder how many people in the Lockyer Valley Regional Council area (where we live in the western part of South East Queensland) are aware that the Council accepts notification of issues on the Snap Send Solve app.
I’d never heard of this app until an audience member at a recent presentation by Cr Jim McDonald on the Council’s environmental policies and programs asked whether the Council used it. They do.
Have a look on the Council website: http://www.lockyervalley.qld.gov.au/our-council/about-council/Pages/Council-Apps.aspx and at the SnapSendSolve website.
The app works on iPhones and Android phones and is available free from the Apple App Store and for Google Play.
Send us a comment on your experience with it and how the Council responds. And please share this post with other residents in the Valley. Since the last elections we have a much more responsive Council and it’s important to maximise the opportunities for better government that this presents by increasing our communications with them.
If you don’t live in the Lockyer Valley, this app is widely used in Australia. Their website claims over 600 “authorities” here and in New Zealand use it and that they have more than 60,000 users.
