The City is pleased to announce that as of next Monday, October 16th, Bakersfield Mobile, the City’s smartphone reporting application will now provide users with the ability to report several different code enforcement-related items directly to City staff. Users will be able to report common types of code enforcement issues such as overgrown lawn or weeds, junk, trash and/or debris in a yard, abandoned furniture, algae in swimming pools and vehicles parked on a lawn. These new options are a result of continued interest from residents on expanding the reporting capabilities available within the app.
These new options are in addition to existing issues that can be reported, which include damaged parks equipment, illegal dumping, graffiti, street light issues, traffic signals issues and potholes. Issues can be reported through photos, video, audio or e-mail messages.
The application is free for to download for both Apple and Android platforms by searching for “Bakersfield Mobile” in the respective app store. Existing users should see the new options available within the app as of next Monday.
