So Newton has a new app for your phone that allows you to report concerns, pinpoint your location and send in pictures for stuff like sidewalk repairs, sign & traffic signal repairs and snow covered sidewalks. There are 14 categories for snow alone! You can also report a bee or wasp nest, broken parking meter, dead animal, down tree — even poison ivy. Don’t talk to me about poison ivy you guys.
This is a great app but I would have included some more categories like borrow a bulldozer from the city, set up a speed trap and police detail for our block party. Or maybe take my kid to school in a SWAT truck.
