“Smartphones are a part of everyday life and for many people, a necessity,” said Haines City Technology Management Director Brian Ross in a statement. “With our new app, residents can stay informed, pay their utility bills or even find where their loved ones are buried more easily.”

According to Haines City officials, once the app is installed and opened, users will see a navigation menu with links to items like a 'calendar' to access information on department events and public meetings. The 'cemetery' feature takes users to a city page with information about both Haines City cemeteries. The 'Employment' link allows users to view and apply to current city position openings, and more.

“We live in an era where people get most of their information and do most of their communicating on a smartphone,” said Edward Walker Dean, City Manager.

“Our Technology Management Department has done a tremendous job developing this app and we think it’s going to be a helpful tool for our residents to apply for jobs, pay bills and to stay up to date on what’s happening around them.”
