New app will help Summerville residents report issues


Potholes, abandoned cars, graffiti, and clogged storm drains are problems that plague many towns and cities around the United States. One Lowcountry town now has a way to help its citizens report such problems.

The town of Summerville has a new app that allows people to report non-emergency issues. It also allows people to submit a photo, a location for the problem and some additional background information.

“We’re excited to launch this new, upgraded citizen engagement app,” Leo Larkin, Summerville’s Information Technology Manager, said. “The Town of Summerville app features website, social media integration, things to do and photo location capabilities. This will make it easier for Town residents to report issues.”

The app also provides updates on meetings and jobs. It’s available in the Google Play and Apple Store for free download. Town officials advise it’s not to be used in place of a real emergency when it’s necessary to call 9-1-1.
