Calls to 311, the city’s non-emergency request line, have dropped by eight percent in the last year, while digital requests have grown, according to city data.
The city hopes that digital requests, those through the 311 mobile app, email and web, continue to grow so it can support more people using the service, said 311 Contact Center Operations Manager Sheryl Johnson.
The 311 mobile app, launched in September 2012, is the second-most popular way to submit requests, with an average of 1,747 requests coming through the app per month, Johnson said. The city also saw a 20 percent increase in email requests over the last year, she said.
Still, digital requests made up only five percent of the 90,596 requests the city received in August 2013. Check out our infographic here.-30-
