They may say, “Fuhgeddaboudit!” often, but residents of the Garden State know that some issues are worth reporting. Those who live in Elizabeth, South Orange and other towns that use GovPilot’s Report a Concern module have it easy. They can access a digital Report a Concern form through their district’s official website or report an issue as soon as it arises via the GovAlert mobile app. Both portals offer the capability to add image attachments, a detailed description and the guarantee that the issue will reach the government department responsible for its resolution in record time.
