City of Glenwood Springs introduces free, interactive mobile app for smartphone and tablet
Essential city news, notifications and real-time information
Glenwood Springs, Colo. (November 13, 2014) — The City of Glenwood Springs has partnered with Cloudspeaker™ software to provide an efficient new way for residents to receive meeting and calendar notifications, contact staff and council, and communicate neighborhood needs and concerns. The City of Glenwood Springs Mobile App is a free download at the Apple App Store and Google Play, and works on any smartphone or tablet.
"This is a great way for us to communicate and interact with our citizens," says Bob Farmer, director of information systems for the City of Glenwood Springs. "And the communication goes both ways. I think one of the most compelling benefits is that a resident can share a service request by snapping a photo of what needs attention on his or her device, and then send it on to us so we can take action." A typical service request might be a pothole, light outage or other maintenance issue.
Other features of the app include a seamless communication portal to city council members and staff. The app pushes real-time notifications on construction, maintenance projects and street closures to its subscribers. Finally, the comprehensive calendar lists all council, board and commission meeting times and agendas. The calendar also communicates classes and events at the Glenwood Springs Community Center.
There are several ways to download the app: users can search for City of Glenwood Springs in Google Play and the Apple App store, or visit www.cogs.us and click the City of Glenwood MobileApp banner.
