Ever wondered where/how to report a pothole, a stray dog in your neighborhood, high weeds at a home or business or report a stop light that is out? Mayor Ballard has created RequestIndy, a new online portal that allows residents to report problems in their neighborhood. This new site is equipped with GIS mapping technology to provide a user friendly means of connecting with the city and also tracking your request.
RequestIndy is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Residents can access an aerial street level view of an area to report problems even if they do not know the exact address. You will still be able to call the Mayor’s Action Center at 317-327-4MAC to report issues also.
