post1Today, Councilman Bill Peduto will announce the release of iBurgh, a new iPhone application that will work to improve government response to constituent services, such as snow removal and fixing potholes. Councilman Peduto and the local company YinzCam Inc. have worked together to make this launch possible today.

This application will allow constituents to use their iPhone to take a picture of a pothole, or other concern, and instantly submit a picture and location along with the complaint to the city’s 311 system.

Pittsburgh is the first major city in the county to utilize this type of government integrated iPhone application.
