Ikaika M Hussey

Honolulu Mayor Peter Carlisle today announced the launch of “Honolulu 311,” a new system through which the public may use personal smart phones to report abandoned vehicles, broken street lights, illegal dumping and other issues.
Besides encouraging the public to help alert City officials about ongoing issues, Honolulu 311 also allows people to submit photographs illustrating these situations, and can pinpoint their locations using built-in GPS systems.

The app is available on iOS, Android, Windows Mobile, and Blackberry.

The information submitted through the system will be reviewed and forwarded to appropriate departments for action.
