UNION CITY GA - On Thursday, January 16th, 2020 The City of Union City Georgia’s mobile reporting application, ‘UC Connection’, will be available to download on the App Store and the Google Play Store. In an effort to improve the quality of service for its 21,000 residents, the ‘UC Connection’ App will help Union City Government and residents build a more transparent, collaborative, and engaged community. Powered by SeeClickFix, UC Connection helps residents collaborate with local government to improve their neighborhoods. The App will serve as the best way to report illegal dumping, potholes, graffiti, and other non-emergency related issues.

With a touch of a finger, residents will be able to report quality of life issues directly with their smartphone. By offering a user-friendly interface, UC Connection provides a more convenient way to upload photos, videos, and specific descriptions – valuable information needed to expedite tasks to appropriate departmental groups. In addition, the SeeClickFix platform will provide administrators with a centralized issue management system to manage reports from start to finish. With the assistance of this new application, city leaders can make informed decisions, detect themes in developmental needs and report on progress to its community and constituents. 

“Technological excellence is no longer a choice, it’s a necessity. We’ve entered the digital age and must meet residents and business owners where they are and fast! UC will use this opportunity to make our city more responsive to everyone” stated Union City’s Mayor Vince Williams. 

  A free training class will be held on Thursday, January 16th, at the Gathering Place, located at 6280 Bryant Street, Union City GA, from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm. The purpose of this class is to highlight the application’s features as well as to provide a walkthrough on how to report an issue and track the progress. The ‘UC Connection’ application is available and free to download on the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.

About SeeClickFix

SeeClickFix was founded in 2008 to empower citizens with tools to publicly document quality of life concerns in their neighborhoods. By radically improving the quantity and quality of this data, SeeClickFix was quickly adopted by local governments, who needed a better way to receive information from citizens.

This exchange helped to build one of the largest neighborhood networks in the world — upon which public agencies and public citizens engage to improve communities.
