our First Ever SeeClickFix Sweepstakes wraps up! Data Drives Deployment.
For the month of May, we launched our first ever SeeClickFix sweepstakes. Citizens utilized the City's SeeClickFix system to help solve problems in the public right-of-way for a chance to win a fabulous gift from a Jack London merchant. Two active and wonderful community members each won a wine tasting for two at minimo wine shop! On SeeClick Fix, users are able to report issues, vote to fix favorites, and track response from the City. Check out and track the Jack London Watch Area. Announcing next sweepstakes soon, so stay posted for a chance to be entered and help deploy resources to our neighborhood.
