Hurstville City Council unveils free iPhone App
27 Aug 2012
Mayor of Hurstville, Cr Steve McMahon has unveiled Council’s free iPhone application (App) allowing residents and visitors to access information via their smartphone.
Mayor McMahon said the App gives the community greater flexibility to stay in touch with Council 24 hours a day.
“This is yet another way of harnessing technology to make our customers’ lives easier,” he said.
“You can find out when your next rubbish, recycling or green waste collection is, your nearest library or where to park, all with a touch of the button.
"A lot of our residents are time-poor so rather than trawling through our website or calling our Customer Service Centre, this information is now available in one handy portal.”
Mayor McMahon said the App features information such as news, what’s on, reserves and parks, library services and nearest attractions.
“It also allows residents to report issues such as potholes, damaged footpaths or illegally dumped rubbish,” he said.
“So now residents can lodge a report with Council at their convenience.
“It will then be logged into Council’s system for further action as required.”
Mayor McMahon said the goal was to cut through the red tape and make doing business with Council more efficient and effective.
“It is all about making life easier for those who don’t have the time to deal with Council by waiting on hold or reading brochures.”
Mayor McMahon said the App is available for free download from the iTunes App Store by searching “Hurstville”.
