St. Lucie County Launches New Mobile App
Post Date: 2/22//2017
The St. Lucie County Board of County Commissioners has made it easier for residents to connect with county departments by creating the My St. Lucie mobile app – now available for free download through the Google Play and Apple stores.
The My St. Lucie app allows residents to easily submit requests for services; ask questions or request public records. Directly through the app, residents can take a photograph of a problem area such as a pothole or flooded street and send that image and location to St. Lucie County to be properly routed to the correct department for processing. After submitting requests, residents can use the mobile app to track the status of their request.
The My St. Lucie app also provides access to St. Lucie County’s social media posts and provides useful information about county events and programs.
For those that may not have a smart phone or don’t feel comfortable downloading the app, a web-based version of the mobile app is available to allow residents to submit requests through the county’s website.
FIND Helps St. Lucie County with Sand for Fort Pierce Inlet Beach Renourishment
Starting in mid-April, St. Lucie County will begin placing as much as 100,000 cubic yards of sand on the beach immediately south of the Fort Pierce Inlet to combat the severe erosion that has occurred there.
The sand is being provided to St. Lucie County through an agreement with the Florida Inland Navigation District (FIND), which is currently working on a maintenance dredging project within the Intracoastal Waterway. FIND is donating the beach-quality sand to St. Lucie County, reducing its costs to haul the material to FIND’s storage site, while saving the county from spending funds to have sand trucked or shipped from offshore.
Contractors have already begun mobilizing equipment, materials and machinery to the Fort Pierce Beach area. The pumping of sand on the beach immediately south of the Fort Pierce Inlet is expected to begin in mid-April with all operations on the beach to be completed before May 31. Due to the short time frame, crews expect to be pumping sand 24 hours a day; seven days a week to avoid negatively impacting sea turtle nesting in that area.
