Staff reviewed various mobile applications available for local government entities and determined that while there are many mobile application solutions that could serve the Village�s basic purposes � the residents of the area would be better served by a multi-jurisdictional approach.
The goal was to work with the Park District, library districts, townships and all school districts to coordinate a unified mobile application for all residents in the region. This mobile app would be populated with updates and information from all levels of local government.
Andy Todd, Chief Operating Officer for Constituent Outreach Consultants, INC, will be introducing the mobile application. He is a software and technology expert, and has 20 years experience helping local governments implement technology.
Constituent Outreach Consultants INC helps elected officials and municipalities communicate with constituents more effectively using the latest in technology, social media, and telecommunications. The idea is to connect with people where they are already going for their information: their email inbox, Facebook account, and cell phones.
