The city of Frankfort has a new app to put information about city services onto smart phones, tablets and other devices.
Users can report a damaged street sign, pay a parking ticket, find out when the next ArtWalk is happening and discover what’s up for discussion on the next Frankfort City Commission agenda.
The app, free on the app store for iPhone users and on GooglePlay for Android users, was one of the commission’s goals for 2015, said Rebecca Hall, community relations and grants manager.
One goal was to produce a city guide that would put needed information in the hands of residents. After researching several variations of printed guides, city staff concluded that much of the requested information was on the city website. Staff also determined that a printed guide would be costly and would quickly be outdated.
To find the app, search for City of Frankfort, Ky. The app is free and should take only a minute or two to download to your smart device.
The app provides access to the Frankfort/Franklin County community calendar, the city’s Facebook page, city commission videos, parking ticket and property payments, and access to the city’s website. The app also gives direct contact information for City Hall, including email, phone and an interactive map.
The app can also be expanded to include additional functions as they are needed, and the city welcomes public input on what additions might be helpful.
