Problems fixed in a snap with new Council phone app

POTHOLES, damaged street signs and graffiti.

These are just some of the problems that Rockhampton Regional Council is planning to solve with their new phone app.

The Snap Send Solve app lets residents take photos and notify council of common problems around the city.

Council CEO Evan Pardon said the app was a tech-savvy way for the community to communicate with council.

"The Snap Send Solve app is a great way for our community to let us know what things need our immediate attention such as pot holes, missing street signs, litter or graffiti to name a few," Mr Pardon said.

"It allows the user to take a photo, add an inquiry or provide feedback, and send it directly through to council, all in under 30 seconds."

All requests through the app will be followed up by staff.

Mr Pardon said including a photo with a complaint allowed council to immediately understand the extent of the damage.

"If council knows what needs attention quicker, we can fix them and the whole community will benefit," he said.
