MT. HEALTHY LAUNCHES SEECLICKFIX
The City of Mt. Healthy is proud to announce the launch of SeeClickFix in our city. SeeClickFix is a service that allows residents to report issues throughout the community- such as potholes, graffiti, abandoned cars, and more- using the SeeClickFix or online web portal. But not to worry, residents can still call and come into City Hall to report problems. One of the major benefits of SeeClickFix is that if residents provide an email address when they report an issue, they will receive automatic updates when action is taken to resolve the issue, so every step of the way, residents will be in the know about the status of their issue. To report an issue, click on the SeeClickFix button on our website menu or download the SeeClickFix app. Happy reporting!
