COM Connect App Helps Residents Share Information with Maui County
Wailuku, Maui – The County of Maui announced the availability of a new app which will enable residents to participate in community-based reporting from their cell phones/mobile devices or web.
Powered by SeeClickFix Inc. technology, COM Connect (short for County of Maui Connect) is a place-based reporting platform which allows residents to document neighborhood concerns and improvements alike, ranging from litter and flooding to damaged sidewalks and malfunctioning traffic signals. The app is available for free through most iPhone and Android app stores and is already active.
“Technology has once again made our world a smaller place, and this is a good thing for all of our residents,” said Mayor Alan Arakawa. “With COM Connect people will be able to participate more and be a part of the process that it takes to run a community.”
COM Connect will allow residents also report community issues, as well as view, comment on and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors. Citizens can even create their own “watch areas” to receive notifications about all issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests – not just the ones they report.
