Did you almost damage your vehicle going over a huge pothole? Is your neighbourhood park overrun by uncut grass?

If you're having an issue in Mississauga, you might not realize how easily you can inform the city.

The City of Mississauga recently announced that the Pingstreet app has gotten an upgrade for Mississauga specifically. Residents are now able to report up to 28 different issues they may come across, such as potholes, graffiti or tall grass at a city park.

The app also allows residents to report lights that require repair, litter, public washrooms that need attention and more. 

"We're excited to provide residents the option to identify issues within a park by entering the park name or selecting it from a map," said Wendy McClymont, manager, 311 Citizen Contact Centre. "We're looking forward to continuing our partnership with business teams across the organization to enhance the service offerings available through Pingstreet."

Using a smartphone or tablet, residents can now report lighting that is causing a problem and long grass/weeds on private property.

In addition, residents can also report on the following for city parks:

* Litter and dumping

* Grass cutting (height exceeds 3 inches or 7.5 cm)

* Washroom maintenance (hand dryer malfunctions, plumbing issues)

* Sports field maintenance (debris clean up, supplies replenishment, irrigation issues)

* Overflowing garbage cans

The Pingstreet app also provides news updates, access to Mississauga's Twitter feed, mayor and council contact information, waste collection schedules from the Region of Peel and more.

In 2018, more than 6,200 requests were successfully reported and resolved for Mississauga residents through the Pingstreet app.

You can download the Pingstreet app on your smartphone or tablet at the App Store, Google Play and BlackBerry World.
