New Phone App Enables Mobile Access To Wellington Services

Wellington has a new free application for smart phones called Access Wellington, which will enable users to access the village for a variety of purposes, including sending photos of graffiti or other problems immediately, and interacting with other available online services while on the go.

The village recently launched a more interactive web site that has numerous new services available online, and the new Access Wellington application launched last week makes them more accessible.

“Our new web site is responsive, so it works on a tablet, a phone or a computer seamlessly,” Public Information Officer Sue Yap said. “We also felt that there may be a need for people to report any concerns they may have, such as a pothole, a garbage pickup issue or a code violation. It is also an easy way to get to parts of the web site.”

The web site already has access to report those types of concerns, but having the app available enables people to take a picture of a pothole or streetlight outage, and add a comment, address or provide their location and send it to the village.

“It will go directly to the department that will fix that issue,” Yap said. “It’s basically another way for residents to get in touch with the village.”

Anyone interested in downloading the app can go to the village web site (, scroll to the bottom of the home page, click on the gray icon with a picture of a cell phone and follow the installation instructions.

It is also available in the iTunes app store and the Google Play store.
