Who ya gonna call? Garbage, dead skunk, traffic signal out?

The City of Vancouver has a mobile app to report issues: VanConnect is a free download for iPhone and Android.

Perhaps the app’s most interesting feature is that it allows residents to easily report select types of issues, like a dead skunk or pothole, to city staff.

The app uses the phone’s GPS to record the location, and the user takes a photo, writes some details, a hits “submit request”. Users will purportedly be notified when their request is dealt with.  A news release from city hall describes the app’s other major features:

  • Use the waste wizard search function to find out if an item is recyclable or garbage
  • See current road closures using an interactive map
  • View recreation maps that lists where all the City’s parks, community and fitness centres, ice rinks, arenas, skateboard parks and swimming pools are located
  • Access online services for parking, dog licences, trade and building permits, employment opportunities and tax and utility information
  • Watch Council meetings through live streams and to contact the Mayor and Council directly
  • Stay up to date on the latest news and calendar of events, with direct access to the City’s social media accounts.  

In the event of an emergency, the city will also use to app to send out updates. 

If you want to speak to a real person or have an issue not covered by the app, you can call 3-1-1 between 7am and 10pm, seven days a week.
