Humboldt, IA Launches SeeClickFix for 4,500+ residents

Today, the City of Humboldt, IA is launching Humboldt Help Out powered by SeeClickFix, a resident reporting tool for its 4,500+ residents. The digital new tools like a desktop and mobile app closes the communication gap between residents and the city government.

Residents can now report neighborhood issues like illegal dumping, graffiti, potholes, broken signs, and more, with photos, videos, descriptions, and automatic geolocation. Once an issue is reported, the resident will be kept in the loop about progress on fixing it.

Humboldt is joining an emerging network of SeeClickFix partner cities in Iowa, which already includes cities like Mason City and Fort Dodge.

The city hopes to increase engagement with a broader base of residents while providing a better service experience. By inviting Humboldt residents to engage more actively in issues that matter to them, the Humboldt local government will be able to increase transparency as well as internal efficiency. The new tools will not only allow residents to engage more easily, but will help City Hall improve its operations from the inside out. With better data, better communication, and an even more well managed workflow, increased internal efficiency will be able to meet the increased demand for services.

It’s clear that Humboldt is committed to engaging meaningfully with a broader network of residents with SeeClickFix. With these new tools, residents and government can work together towards an even better Humboldt and a better Iowa.
