Citizen Reporting Tool

MuniSight’s citizen reporting tool allows municipalities to easily empower rate-payers to submit service requests and notify municipal staff. A simple way to hear from your rate-payers.

The Citizen Reporting Tool seamlessly integrates with our current work order and service request work flow. In addition, the tool is easily able to be linked on your current municipal website.

Some of the key features of the Citizen Reporting Tool include:

– Track Public Requests

– Assign staff & file numbers

– Allows media attachments

– Sort, filter, search between internal & public requests

The Citizen Reporting Tool is a great way to let residents submit service requests, report non-emergencies, and submit infrastructure inquiries.
