Phone App Causes Disagreement At Springfield City Hall

There appears to be some disagreement over the value of a new phone app designed to put you in closer touch with local government in Springfield… The Gov 311 app was designed by city budget director Bill McCarty on his own time.

It allows people to use the app to report problems like potholes or other issues that need attention from City Hall, the school district or other governmental bodies.

But a statement from McCarty’s boss… Mayor Jim Langfelder… says the app is not affiliated with city government, and advises people to report problems directly through the city’s website.
