Tauranga City Council has launched the Antenno mobile phone app as a new, easy-to-use platform to connect with them.
The Antenno app will replace the old FixIt and MyCouncil apps, allowing the public to report issues in their community, such as abandoned cars or graffiti.
Antenno also allows Council to send users push notifications about places that are important to them. Users can save as many ‘places’ as they like, and can opt out of receiving notifications, says a council spokesperson.
"Tauranga City Council will send Antenno users notifications about their specific suburbs or the whole of Tauranga on topics such as road closures, rates reminders, and changes to kerbside collections.
"Antenno has been adopted by other councils around the country, including Opotiki District Council and Western Bay of Plenty District Council."
The FixIt and MyCouncil apps are no longer operational. Users of these apps, as well as the wider community are encouraged to download Antenno. Click here for links to download the app.
