GOOSE CREEK, SC (WCSC) - Goose Creek has launched a mobile app which residents can use to connect to their local government.
The free app, called "My Goose Creek," is available on iTunes and Google Play, and gives residents quick and easy access to city information.
"'My Goose Creek' features widgets (links) for information about City Council and programs, including city news, emergencies, jobs, recreation, events and social media," states a press release by the city."The widgets take users to mobile-enabled web pages. Residents can still ask for help by phone or online, but 'My Goose Creek' makes information as easy as possible to access in the most comfortable and convenient way for anyone living, working or visiting Goose Creek."
City officials say they recognize the changing demographics of younger people locating to the area and understands that tech-savvy generation uses their smart phones to do so many things.
According to Goose Creek officials, the app was developed by CivicPlus as part of the website redesign agreement City Council approved last year.
Residents are not obligated to download the app to access city information. All city programs, events and information will continue to be available on the city's website at www.cityofgoosecreek.com
