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.
