Introducing SeeClickFix for Tampa Bay area

Posted: Updated:
TAMPA, FL (WFLA) -

Today we are excited to announce the launch of a new section on WFLA.com, in partnership with SeeClickFix, an organization deeply focused on empowering Tampa Bay area homeowners with the ability to report non-emergency issues in their community.

Our mission behind this collaboration is to ensure your concerns about your community have an amplified voice. This new section will empower you with the ability to quickly and easily report issues in your neighborhood such as potholes, graffiti, broken playground equipment, debris and broken street lamps with the click of a button.

Ben Berkowitz, CEO of SeeClickFix said, "We're excited to launch a partnership with WFLA, the NBC station in Tampa, Florida. WFLA's longstanding track record of On Your Side reporting is a natural fit for SeeClickFix, a powerful web and mobile platform that allows citizens to discover and report non-emergency issues in their community."

The best part of this new section is the ability for anyone, local government officials, neighbors, friends, family, watch groups and organizations to sign up to receive notifications about any of the issues posted in their community.

TRACK ISSUES IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD

  • Citizens vote on neighborhood issues, or promote more efficient community governance by instantly forwarding them to a person who might be able to help.
  • Neighborhood groups, elected officials and advocates monitor key issues, and publicly propose solutions on how to resolve them.
  • Governments and other entities responsible for the public space (such as utilities and property owners) become more accountable to the public by acknowledging problems and providing effective communication about solutions.

"We look forward to elevating the voice of local Tampa Bay Area residents, and helping to get real neighborhood problems acknowledged and resolved," Berkowitz said.

To get started, please visit the main click here. You can either browse existing reports or follow the simple steps to reporting an issue.

If you hit a snag or need help, you can visit the SeeClickFix help section

  • YOUR VOICE: What do you think about the new section? We'd love to hear your thoughts. Using Facebook, you can leave your comments below. Thanks so much. We hope you enjoy it.
