A dagger plunged into our very hearts!
Chief Minister and Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Jon Stanhope said the online service would help the Government to improve its responsiveness to community issues.
“Fix My Street is an one-stop point for Canberrans to alert the Government to issues in their neighbourhood,” Mr Stanhope said.
“Graffiti, potholes, broken footpaths and grass mowing can be reported online at any time of the day. Canberrans can also use the service to track their request online.
“The Government will use this service to better track and improve its responsiveness to the local issues that affect Canberrans and the livability of their neighbourhood.”
To report a problem, Canberrans need to simply fill out a form, give a brief description of the problem and the location and click the send button. Users can identify the location via a clickable map and upload photos to accompany their report.
By registering for an account, users can also login to see the response from the Government and the progress on their request.
Complaining on RiotACT however is much more fun for all concerned.
(And hey, it’s not like the thieving buggers at the ABC have managed to check our growth, so what’s another government funded attempt to eat our lunch?)
On a more serious note it’ll be interesting to see how TAMS holds up to the load without any barrier to entry for whingers.
