SANTA ANA, CA—Residents of Unincorporated Orange County have a new way to report repairs directly to the OC Public Works Department. OC Public Works is one of the first Orange County departments to launch an iPhone application to assist smartphone users in contacting County government.

This new service, developed in house by OC Public Works , allows users to search "OC Works" on iPhones and iPads to download this free application. By downloading this application, residents can easily request pothole repairs, graffiti removal, street sweeping, report incidents of alleged illegal dumping, water pollution, and/or property violations directly to County staff. The application will ask residents to confirm the location of repair or service need by GPS which will assist County staff in locating the specific area and providing more immediate service. Photos of the issue can also be uploaded to assist in an expedited response.

"The OC Works iPhone app provides another way for residents to access County
government. We look forward to identifying other apps that will allow us to continue to provide the highest level of service to our residents," commented Bob Berg, OC Public Works IT manager.
