Have you ever seen an issue in your neighborhood that you wish the city would take care of? The issue could be a pothole, litter, you name it. Well, it turns out the City of Seattle has an app that you can use to report these issues and they’ll come to deal with it.
The app is called Find It, Fix It, it’s free and it’s available on both the Google Play Store and the App Store. Here’s exactly what you can request to have fixed.
- Abandoned Vehicle: Report vehicles parked in a public right of way for more than three days.
- Clogged Storm Drain: Report a clogged storm drain.
- Dead Animal: Report a dead animal for pickup by animal control officers.
- Graffiti Report: Report graffiti, including what it is on — parking meter, utility pole, or building — so it gets automatically routed to the appropriate department for response.
