Tired of seeing that abandoned couch across the street? Annoyed by a pothole? Noticed fresh graffitti around the corner?
There are a variety of ways to report these community issues to the city and now for constituents who live in Council District 13 there's a new method that aims be more convenient for those who frequently use the web.
Starting this week, Garcetti 3-1-1 expands its capabilities. Initially enacted within Councilman Eric Garcetti's district in April 2010 for mobile devices, the program now includes the option to report community issues via the web.
A new web page allows users to report community issues by pinpointing a location on a map and filling out a brief description. There's an option to upload a photo, too. You can view reports filed by other users and check the status of a request.
“Garcetti 3-1-1 allows Angelenos to submit service requests 24-7 from any computer. It’s a great supplement to the Garcetti 3-1-1 mobile app,” said Garcetti in a news release.
The widget was developed by Los Angeles-based company CitySourced, which also developed the Garcetti 3-1-1 application for the iPhone and Android.
