The City of Lubbock has dropped a new app that citizens may find handy.

The new app puts folks in touch with essential city services at the touch of a button. What's cool is you can, in many cases, just snap a picture of your problem and include that with whatever problem you want to report.

The categories on the main menu shake out like this:

  • Submit a Report/Request
  • Lubbock 311 Information Center
  • City Of Lubbock Website
  • Call Lubbock Animal Services
  • Call City of Lubbock Street Department
  • Call Water Violation Hotline
  • Call Weed Violation Hotline
  • Call Vector Control Hotline-Mosquitos
  • City Parks
  • Recycle Centers
  • Landfill Information
  • CityBus Maps & Schedules
  • Pay City Of Lubbock Utilities Bill
  • Jobs

As you can see, it's a very comprehensive list of links and info. If it's missing anything, it could be opportunities for positive feedback, but I guess you can just take some initiative to do that.

Here's more from the City of Lubbock:

"This has been a years-long project and we are thrilled to offer citizens another, and more modern, way to contact the City with requests and reports," says Communications & Marketing Manager Lacey Nobles. "The different functions of the MyLBK app, especially the ability to track a request, allow citizens to be more engaged, and reinforces the organization's commitment to transparency."

It's obviously a lightweight app too, because it installed in seconds. I don't know if I'll ever need any of this information, but it certainly feels handy to have it on my phone. It also doesn't appear to have any request to "Send Notifications," which is obviously covered by other services.

Just head to the App Store or Google Play and search for 'MyLBK' and it should come right up. It's a worthwhile download.
