A NEW app has been launched to improve the way Monmouth­shire County Council communicates with the public.

‘My Monmouthshire’ is an easy way to quickly contact the council and enables people to report an incident using a photo or a video from their phone.  

Cllr Bob Greenland, Monmouthshire’s cabinet member with responsibility for innovation, said: “The ‘My Monmouthshire’ app will enable more and more people to engage with the council in real time. It will make it much easier for residents to access information and report any problems to us, so we can respond faster. I would urge all residents with smart phones to download the ‘My Monmouthshire’ app and tell their friends and family about it.”

The app also provides latest news updates from the council and features local service information such as waste collection days, job vacancies, bus timetables or school data.

It can be downloaded from your smart phone app store.
