NEW BRUNSWICK - New Brunswick Animal Control may now be contacted via the city's ReportIt app.
Reportit is a free app that allows users to send non-emergency reports directly to city officials regarding things they see around town. It is free, simple to use, supports multiple languages and is available for iPhone and Android technology.
Community members may utilize ReportIt to contact several city departments, including Housing Inspections, Engineering, DPW, the Mayor's Office and Parks. Animal Control is the newest offering to join our app, giving all users the option to report animal-related issues directly to our Animal Control department for assistance. Any emergency issues involving an animal should be reported by calling 911.
Those who choose to report an issue can do so within New Brunswick boundaries by opening the app and selecting “City of New Brunswick.”
Users answer a few questions regarding the issue in question, provide comments and are able to attach a photo. Each report also includes a map and GPS data for the location, along with date and time.
Reports can be entered by smartphone, tablet or desktop and can include the author’s contact information or be made anonymously. All submissions will be sent to designated City officials to be reviewed and addressed.
Resident feedback is an important tool in helping City officials keep our community running smoothly and the purpose of this tool is to provide residents with an easy, direct and mobile way to contact City government about issues in our community.
