    Transportation & Public Works provided a leadership role in developing SoCo Report It, which provides people with the ability to submit and monitor the status of service requests for common maintenance and repair issues in the unincorporated county area using both the Internet and smartphone applications. The app provides a convenient way to submit service requests, such as reporting a pothole or streetlight outage, and make it easy to attach a photo of the problem. Additionally, the app automatically records the location via the GPS location services on the smartphone. The submitter can track progress of the request from submission to resolution.
