Get the Glenwood app
The City of Glenwood Springs has partnered with Cloudspeaker software to create an app for mobile devices that allows residents to receive meeting and calendar notifications, contact staff and council, and communicate neighborhood needs and concerns.
The City of Glenwood Springs Mobile App is a free download at the Apple App Store and Google Play, and works on any smartphone or tablet.
“This is a great way for us to communicate and interact with our citizens,” said Bob Farmer, director of information systems for the City of Glenwood Springs. “And the communication goes both ways. I think one of the most compelling benefits is that a resident can share a service request by snapping a photo of what needs attention on his or her device, and then send it on to us so we can take action.” A typical service request might be a pothole, light outage or other maintenance issue.
Other features of the app include a seamless communication portal to City Council members and staff. The app pushes real-time notifications on construction, maintenance projects and street closures to its subscribers. Finally, the comprehensive calendar lists all council, board and commission meeting times and agendas. The calendar also communicates classes and events at the Glenwood Springs Community Center.
There are several ways to download the app: users can search for City of Glenwood Springs in Google Play and the Apple App store, or visit http://www.cogs.us and click the City of Glenwood Mobile App banner.
