Facebook App Connects Public to Local Government
True to the recent trend that can be observed in both local governments and the federal government, the city of Burleson, Texas has released a new Facebook app named the Citizen Request Tracker soon to be spread to other communities nationwide that makes it easier for citizens to report problems and request services from its local government.
This app can help alert the local authorities about such issues such as pot holes, graffiti, barking dogs and malfunctioning streetlights.
