Duluth receives grant to help update mobile app

The Duluth City Council recently accepted a $2,000 grant from the Gwinnett Convention and Visitors Bureau to provide an update to the City of Duluth app. The marketing and public information department will use the funds for improvements including an online map, a walk-around map and user notifications.

The free mobile application currently offers residents a city calendar, parking, dining and shopping information. Users may also access the app to learn about and contact the mayor and city councilmembers as well as information about nearby parks. Residents may also report issues including potholes, street light outages, stormwater and garbage problems or code enforcement violations.

Acceptance of the funds allows the city to amend the FY17 budget to add the grant funds to the Public Information/Marketing - Administration - Professional Services line item.
