In an effort to provide residents the ability to report community issues, the city of Boynton Beach has debuted a free mobile phone app available in both the Apple and Google Play app stores.

Through the mobile app, which was launched on Oct. 9, residents can report problems such as potholes, abandoned vehicles, faulty street lights, water line breaks and more.

With the intention to simplify the process, Boynton Beach Public Works Director Andrew Mack said he believes the app will help resolve reported issues more promptly.

“The city of Boynton Beach app makes it very easy for residents to report issues they see,” Mack said in a press statement. “In turn, the city can address these issues in a more timely and seamless manner.”

Users can report issues, along with a photo, that will be sent directly to the appropriate city department as well as communicate with a city official via email until the matter is resolved.

Also recommended for visitors, the app provides information about the city’s parks and amenities, including general details about parking and events
