City Officials Invite Feedback Via DigiTally Phone App
For Tallahassee residents who see broken sidewalk, water main leaks or just have a general concern—the city of Tallahassee has an app for that.
The DigiTally smartphone app allows residents to connect directly with city officials if they see something amiss, and City Commissioner Gil Ziffer says he’d like to see more people using it.
“There’s an app that allows you to take a photo of something you see that’s bothersome and you can send it to the appropriate department, and pretty darn quick they’ll send someone to inspect it. And if it requires improvements, they’ll do that,” he said on WFSU's "Perspectives" Thursday.
The DigiTally app is for non-emergencies, like pot holes, graffiti and broken street lights. And it’s monitored by the city during normal business hours. There’s also a non-mobile version of the site available on the city’s website. The app can also be used to make a gripe or two—as one person did after seeing a parking enforcement truck idling in the middle of the road.
