The City of Valparaiso Indiana has launched a new program called Visual Valpo, aimed to provide a channel for public concerns to be brought to the attention of city staff.
Whether it be potholes, downed trees, damaged signs, unsightly refuse, a malfunctioning light, or other issues, residents are encouraged to contact the city thru the Visual Valpo program. Designed to help keep Valparaiso safe and looking great in all seasons, residents and visitors can 1) text the keyword visualvalpo to 313131, 2) call 219-548-4850, OR 3) visit www.valpo.us/requesttracker.aspx to submit concerns. Alternatively, an iphone application called Citizen Request Tracker is also available for download. The city will then direct the message to the proper city department so it receives prompt attention.
As always, residents should still dial 9-1-1 in the event of an emergency in Valparaiso and outlying communities.
