There’s an app for that; Manassas releases app
© Culpeper TimesWorking to better coordinate citizen access to information about upcoming events, city dining and shopping options as well as improving access to City Hall, Manassas Councilman Ian Lovejoy has announced the release of the “Your Manassas” community resource app.
The app, which is currently available for download from the iPhone app store, features the ability to report concerns directly to the city, has access to the city news feed and Facebook page and also hosts a directory of commonly used numbers and city contacts.
The app also features “push notifications,” keeping citizens updated in real time regarding upcoming city events.
Reporting graffiti, potholes or other issues is also possible through the app's “report a concern” feature.
Lovejoy also included the ability to access upcoming public events as well as local dining and shopping options.
“Having developed this app personally, I’m particularly happy to announce it operates at zero tax payer expense,” Lovejoy said in a written statement. “I always feel innovation trumps taxation any day.”
The “Your Manassas” app is the first app deployed in the commonwealth and the only one known to combine standard City Hall functions, such as reporting concerns and staff directories, with a meaningful way to stay updated on community events and dining.
To download the app, search “Your Manassas” in the iPhone app store or visit yourmanassas.com.
