Township Launches ‘LM Report-It’ Smartphone App
Lower Merion Township has launched a new smartphone app for residents called “LM Report-It,” which allows residents to easily report NON-EMERGENCY problems in Lower Merion – such as potholes, vandalism, sidewalk obstructions and trash – and for these smart reports (including photo and GPS location) to be automatically sent to the Township for systematized and prioritized resolution.
The free app was built by CitySourced, a Los Angeles-based company that promotes they “represent the vanguard of the open government movement by leveraging the latest technologies to take the friction out of civic engagement.”
The app is downloadable for Apple and Android platforms on smartphone and tablet systems. Search for “LM Report-It” in your app store. There is also a mobile web version available for your desktop, at the LowerMerion.org website.
“As the leader of our Township staff and a resident of Lower Merion, I understand the importance of being accountable and responding quickly to concerns before they escalate into larger problems,” said Township Manager Ernie McNeely.
Township staff will respond to these non-emergency queries via the new app quickly, and issues often will be resolved within days, if possible.}
“This is easy to use, key new technology for the Township,” said Paul McElhaney, president of the Board of Commissioners. “It will help our residents make Lower Merion an even better place to live. LM Report-It was developed to streamline, prevent, and help predict the occurrences of problems and improve quality of life and public safety, using mobile technology.”
