Find It, Fix It Smart Phone App
Want to report a pothole, graffiti or an abandoned vehicle while on the go in Seattle? The City of Seattle’s “Find It, Fix It” app gives you a convenient way to alert the City to such issues, while providing location information that helps City staff respond.
“Find It, Fix It” is a free smartphone app for iPhone and Android users offering people on the go one more way to report selected issues to the City of Seattle.
Reporting issues quickly when first spotted will greatly increase the city’s response time, can prevent damage to infrastructure and property, and is the neighborly thing to do.
With Find It, Fix It, reporting an issue is as easy as snapping a photo with your smartphone, adding detailed information, and hitting submit. The map’s “drag and drop” feature or the phone’s own technology can be used to pinpoint the location.
The app offers the following service request categories:
- Abandoned Vehicles: report vehicles parked in a public right-of-way more than three days.
- Graffiti: report graffiti, including what it is on — parking meter, utility pole or building — so it gets automatically routed to the appropriate department for response.
- Illegal Dumping: report illegal dumping — junk, garbage or debris — on public property, including roadsides, open streets and paved alleys.
- Parking Enforcement: make an inquiry regarding a parking concern.
- Pothole: report a pothole.
- Streetlight Report: report a streetlight outage or damaged streetlight.
- Other Inquiry: this miscellaneous category is for making an inquiry or request not listed above, which will be processed by the City’s Customer Service Bureau. Mobile users should choose this category to provide feedback.
The app also provides a link to m.seattle.gov, the mobile version of the City of Seattle’s website.
Once you download and use Find It, Fix It, feel free to submit feedback using the app’s “other inquiry” category, found under the “New Request” icon.
