City Launches New Free App for Android Users
City of Las Vegas Mobile Allows Users To Report Problems And Find City Parking

 

The city of Las Vegas has launched an app for Android™ users who want to report a neighborhood problem, find parking or locate downtown food trucks. Download “city of Las Vegas mobile” using the Google Play™ store app.

Citizens can report or check the status of any problem in the Las Vegas city limits, such as graffiti, a pothole, out of service streetlight, etc. The app can be accessed while people are out in the community and when they see a problem or after they’ve reached their destination. The alerts are received in real time by crews out in the field, so if, for example, a resident were to send a problem about graffiti, crews in the field would receive the notice and could respond to the area.

The app also includes a parking link that will show a map of city-operated public parking areas as well as the number of spaces, rates and hours of operation. The app also provides a map that highlights downtown food trucks and their locations.

In addition, the app also links to the city’s Facebook page, Twitter feed, YouTube channel and news release archives.

Last year, the city launched a similar app for iPhone users, and it can be downloaded for free at the App Store.

The city also has a mobile website, m.lasvegasnevada.gov, which also allows citizens to report a problem within the city of Las Vegas via their mobile phones. This site, launched in 2010, is compatible with any mobile phone that has web browsing capability. No application needs to be downloaded
