ÔMy MilpitasÕ app to launch
Submitted By Renee Lorentzen
The City of Milpitas is fast approaching the launch of new mobile app ÒMy MilpitasÓ set for Thursday, September 26. The free app that allows users to access tools like Latest News & Events, City Locations, Resident Reporting, and Employment Opportunities will be available through the Apple App Store. An app for Android users is expected to be released in the near future.
ÒMy MilpitasÓ users can expect their questions, comments, and concerns to be answered by several of the CityÕs departments and staff is excited for this new communication tool! The CityÕs Public Works Department is expected to experience the majority of the initial interface with the community through the Resident Reporting tool.
ÒThe new Mobile App will be a huge benefit to not only the public but to Public Works staff. As a concern is encountered by the public, a picture can be taken, sent to Public Works with GPS coordinates and a description of the concern, and the item can be addressed. Staff will even be able to group work based on geographical location and be more efficient. This will streamline the process as the City works on implementing the Ôdoing more with lessÕ concept,Ó says Public Works Director/City Engineer Jeff Moneda.
Additional app features such as Park Location & Amenities, Commission resources, and accessing City Council video and minutes are expected to launch in January 2014.
Download ÒMy MilpitasÓ in the Apple App Store for free on Thursday, September 26. Android support is coming soon!
