BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Anyone who would like to get the city-parish to help with a problem, there is now an app for that as the City of Baton Rouge is going even more high tech.
Mayor Kip Holden announced the launch of the Red Stick 311 smartphone app Wednesday. Leaders said it should make reporting service related issues a lot easier for residents.
"We live in a world that runs on technology, and because of this, there is an expectation for all devices, platforms, and applications to keep pace," said Mayor Holden. "Here in Baton Rouge, we recognize that expectation and want to continue changing how government has traditionally interacted with citizens by now offering our 3-1-1 services as a web platform and smartphone application.
"Red Stick 311 takes our commitment to digital innovation and citizen service one step further by placing the power of requesting assistance or reporting issues in the palms of our citizens' hands and in a way that is most convenient for them."
Users can log in and request services, track the progress of the request, and even upload images to go along with the request.
All of this can be done on the app or from a computer on the Red Stick 311 website.
