Tim Potter began using SeeClickFix as a way to warn fellow cyclists about potholes and other dangerous conditions for biking. Thanks to his efforts, issues in Lansing, Michigan reported on SeeClickFix are being noticed by everyone from the City Council to their local NBC affiliate.
WILX-TV News 10 reporter Jamie Edmonds learned about our site when she spoke with City Council Member Carol Wood. An active member of her community, as well as an active SCF user, Carol has not only been monitoring Lansing issues on SeeClickFix, but she ensures that reported issues are addressed by the proper city department. After speaking with Carol, Tim and our very own Ben Berkowitz, News 10 aired a segment last night about the use of SeeClickFix for addressing issues in Lansing.
We think the story perfectly illustrates how SeeClickFix connects users to their local officials and local media. A huge thank you to Tim, Carol and WILX-TV for helping us spread the word in Lansing, and for encouraging your community to start SeeClickFixin'!
