New app keeps you connected to city leaders

(WMC-TV) - Want to find out what's happening in the city of Memphis and tell city leaders what you think about things happening around town?

Well, there's an APP for that!

The app allows the city to send out notifications on weather, road closures or special events.

Creators say it makes it easier for the government to get information to you, and then you will be able to send messages back.

In the event of an amber alert or hazmat spill, you will be notified immediately.

If you want to download the App just go to the APP store and search for Smart-Gov App.

It is only available for iPhone right now.

Another app will come later for Android phones.
