The City of Jonesboro has launched OneJonesboro – a free mobile app that empowers citizens to easily report non-emergency issues located within the City limits of Joensboro. It also provides on-the-go access to the latest City news and information.
In a matter of minutes, the app allows users to submit a description, picture and location of a City neighborhood issue, such as a streetlight outage, pothole or park trail obstruction.
The report is automatically submitted to the respective division or department for review. The individual who submitted the service requested will be notified when the issue has been acknowledged and closed. Citizens will also be able to view, comment on and vote to fix problems submitted by their neighbors.
Additional features of the app allow residents to read about the latest city news and events, contact City staff, and more!

OneJonesboro was developed in partnership with SeeClickFix and Clayton County. SeeClick Fix was founded in 2008 to empower citizens with tools to publicly document quality of life concerns in their neighborhoods. By radically improving the quantity and quality of this data, SeeClickFix was quickly adopted by local governments, who needed a better way to received information from citizens.
This exchange helped to build one of the largest neighborhood networks in the world – upon which public agencies and public citizens engage to improve communities. Today, SeeClickFix has official partnerships with hundreds of cities, engaging hundreds of thousands of citizens in the resolution of millions of issues.
SeeClickFix has worked with government partners to develop municipal management tools on top of this citizen network. As SeeClickFix is adopted into the everyday lives of government users, the benefit of the engaged citizen base continues to grow.
