FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The City of Springfield has launched its first mobile app, GoSpringfieldMO. The app is available for free download via iTunes (for Apple devices) and the Google Play store (for Android devices) by searching “GoSpringfieldMO.” App users can report concerns to the Citizen Resource Center, view City job openings, view and bid on the City’s Division of Purchases’ bid postings for products and services, catch up on City news, share ideas, and view the mobile versions of City Web sites, which include the Springfield Police Department, Springfield Fire Department, Springfield-Greene County Park Board and coming soon, the Springfield Greene-County Health Department and Springfield Art Museum. The app was designed by Manhattan, Kansas-based CivicPlus, a government Web site developer. The app launch follows the August 2014 launch of a new springfieldmo.gov, which was redesigned to increase community engagement and transparency. “The City understands that our citizens need real-time information,” says Cora Scott, director of Public Information and Civic Engagement. “Our new mobile app is an innovative tool that will offer easier and faster access to important City information and services.” ### For more information, please call Cora Scott at 417-864-1009 or 417-380-3352.
