THE City of Almeria will soon launch a new mobile application designed to engage citizens in consultations and surveys for city-wide decisions.

Councilor for Employment, Transparency and New Technologies, Manuel Guzman, said that the app will promote and favour citizen participation in those consultation processes that are from now on put in place.”

Technology company Hamantide, SL has been awarded 20,557.90 euros for the development and maintenance of the app. The objective, said Guzman, is to “offer citizens new channels of communication with a new tool as a direct way of participation in municipal management.”

The development of the new App, named ‘Almería Participa’, will be available for Android and IOS platforms, which currently have the largest market share, and will allow sharing of content through social networks. Different languages, including English, are also a feature, with the possibility of instant messaging between elected officials and citizens a possibility in the future.
