A Latte Love Brewing in Philadelphia

Though I may avoid the bean, coffee smells like freshly ground heaven to most people around the SeeClickFix office. With the help of the Newbold Neighbors Association, our relationship with coffee will be getting a bit stronger.

Based in Philadelphia, the Newbold Neighbors Association just launched its very own SeeClickFix contest hoping to stir the pot and wake up the local government. Lasting until May 30th, residents can espresso their concerns through several means from the Newbold widget and SeeClickFix main site to the SeeClickFix mobile site and smartphone apps. Not tech-savvy? Don't fret; you can even call 877-853-1552 to submit issues brewing in the area.

With coffee being offered as the prize, Newbold residents should grab their mugs and start grinding away in their neighborhood. When May ends, two $25 Ultimo Coffee gift cards will be awarded: one for the person with the most submissions, and the other for someone randomly selected who submits four or more issues. According to the Newbold Neighbors Association, there are two ways to have issues count for you: submitting them under your designated SeeClickFix account OR emailing the town watch whenever you submit an issue (if you want to report concerns anonymously).

For Newbold residents, the best part of waking up may soon be seeing their issues fixed. From concerns (like potholes and litter) to suggestions (like planted trees and community murals), you can report issues whatever flavor you choose!
