The Borough of Raritan has launched a new mobile app, My Raritan, developed by GOGov. The app enables residents to connect with the borough and is available for download in the App Store and Google Play online stores.
Currently, residents can use the app to alert the town of any minor repairs or to otherwise communicate with officials. Orozco emphasized that the app is not a replacement for 911, and that any emergencies should still be routed to the police.
To submit an issue, residents can hit “start a request” on the opening screen, after which they’ll be directed to a list of topics such as noise, traffic congestion and street repair. They’ll then be asked to provide a photo, after which they’ll be asked for the location.
Additionally, logging in allows for employees to keep residents up to date with the status of their requests. Sending requests anonymously is possible, but it precludes employees from keeping the requester on board.
There is also a track request option, where residents can manually check in on their requests and look at past submissions they’ve made.
