PORTLAND — Quality-of-life issues in the city can be reported digitally through a new phone app and the city website, city spokeswoman Jessica Grondin announced Sunday.

Fix It! Portland allows people to report potholes, malfunctioning street lamps, or to request inspections for possible property hazards and safety violations. Grondin said the requests will be automatically routed to the proper city department, although “not all issues will be able to be automatically fixed.”

People reporting issues will receive an automated responses to their request and a status update as the issue is addressed.

“Issues will be completed based on priority-level and budget status,” Grondin said.

The app can be downloaded for Apple and Android devices, or accessed at portlandmaine.gov/fixitportland.
