Allegan, MI launches SeeClickFix for 5,000+ citizens, joins 22+ Michigan partners

Today, Allegan, MI is launching SeeClickFix, a citizen reporting tool for its 5,000+ residents. Allegan citizens can now connect directly with the city government on the town website or through the SeeClickFix mobile app Allegan Connect (available on iPhone and Android). Citizens can report neighborhood issues like illegal dumping, graffiti, potholes and much more and can include photos, videos, descriptions, automatic geolocation, and more. These issues will be automatically routed to the right department and citizens will be updated on progress.

Allegan is joining a robust network of SeeClickFix partner cities in Michigan, joining big cities like Detroit and Ann Arbor, as well as dozens of smaller cities and towns like Big Rapids, Portage, Mt. Pleasant, and more. Allegan’s partnership with SeeClickFix demonstrates the town’s commitment to engaging their citizens and getting work done more efficiently.

It also illustrates how small towns can use SeeClickFix to transform the way they provide citizen services by leapfrogging traditional 311. Allegan joins a nationwide network of small towns that are improving services and efficiency with limited resources.

In addition to the citizen engagement benefits, Allegan hopes to dramatically increase internal efficiency. With better data as well as workflow, the town can improve services using the backend various tools now available to town staff.

The town’s commitment to engaging as many citizens as possible while increasing transparency and internal efficiency is apparent. Allegan’s partnership with SeeClickFix means that citizens and the town government can work together to improve the community now more than ever before.
