Rockdale County Unveils New Rockdale NOW! App
CONYERS, Ga. – Rockdale County is unveiling a new app for citizens called Rockdale NOW! With the Rockdale NOW! App, users will be able to access features including the latest updates, social feeds, county locations, a means to submit code violations, water bill payments and sign up for CodeRED – a notification system for emergencies or weather threats – through the app.
“The Rockdale NOW! App is a way to keep the community informed and connected to everything happening in Rockdale, bridging the gap between the citizen and county government,” Chairman Oz Nesbitt, Sr., said of the app.
With a need to reach citizens quickly and directly, the idea for the app was an initial thought of Commissioner Post 2, Sherri Washington. “We are excited that with this app, members of our community will have County news and services right at their fingertips,” Washington said.
The app was a project carried out by the Rockdale County MIS and Public Relations departments. This is the first release of an app from the County.
“The Rockdale NOW! App is an exciting means for the citizens of Rockdale County to stay in touch with the people who are here to serve the citizens, Al Yelverton, MIS Director said. “Look for enhancements to improve citizen interaction in the near future.”
The MIS department will continuously update the app to suit the citizen’s needs and requests to keep them informed about current events in Rockdale County. All citizens are encouraged to download this free app from the Apple App Store or Google Play. The app can also be downloaded at http://rockdalenow.mobapp.at.
