Omaha Mayor Jim Suttle hosted “Download Day” for the new Omaha Mobile App (OMA), a smart phone application that allows users to snap and submit photos of graffiti, dumping, and other problems to the City of Omaha. The app was launched at a press conference this morning at Essex Park.
I have been committed to using innovation and technology to decrease costs, increase efficiency, and provide citizens with greater access to their government. Today we have taken technology a step further, offering Omaha residents a free mobile application for smart phones that makes it possible to report problems or request city services in a matter of seconds. – Mayor Jim Suttle
The Omaha Mobile App provides a simple and intuitive platform empowering residents to identify civic issues (public safety, quality of life, environmental issues, etc.) and report them to City Hall for quick resolution. It uses geo-tagging technology to automatically provide the problem’s location, simplifying the reporting process for users while increasing the reliability of report location for the service crews.
Through the Omaha Mobile App, users will be able to report problems for the city to address, including:
- Abandoned bicycles and vehicles
- Deceased animals
- Bulky items
- Illegal dumping
- Broken sidewalks
- Overgrown trees
