"Problemspotter" system upgraded in Flint

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (AP) -

The city of Flint says changes made to an online reporting system will make it easier for residents to report problems such as potholes and water main breaks.

The revamp of the system called "Problemspotter" was introduced to the City Council during a Wednesday committee meeting. The system first launched with the city's new website at the beginning of the year.

The system features an interactive map that lets residents post pictures and track the status of fixes. The city said in a news release that the upgrades also improve collection and data tracking done by employees.

The upgrade cost $11,400. The city says it can be expanded to allow residents to report on other issues, such as blight and streetlight outages.
