The City of Bakersfield is improving citizen accessibility with its innovative Bakersfield mobile application.
Through the application, users are able to report service related issues for the City to address, including damaged parks equipment, illegal dumping, graffiti, street lights, traffic signals and potholes. Issues can be reported through photos, video, audio or e-mail messages.
The application uses geo-tagging technology to automatically provide the location, simplifying the reporting process for users while increasing the reliability of the report location for the service crews.
The application is free for download at the following sites.
Bakersfield Mobile was recently recognized as the 2014 Kern Council of Government Regional Award of Merit Award Winner in the category of Innovation.
