The “My North Hempstead” Mobile App Helps You Dig Out of the Snow
North Hempstead, NY – With the winter season in full swing, North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth would like to remind you that the “My North Hempstead” mobile app allows you to contact North Hempstead’s 311 Call Center 24/7 about any snow related issues.
The app, which launched in 2014, has a ‘Snow Removal Issues’ service request option where you can report a street that has not been plowed, or a street that needs to be re-plowed. You can even take a picture of an unplowed street to include in your request. After you submit your service request through the “My North Hempstead” app you will receive a tracking number so you can follow up with the Town regarding your request.
“The ‘My North Hempstead’ app is a valuable resource for Town residents during snow events and emergency situations,” Supervisor Bosworth said. “I encourage everyone with a mobile device to download the app and take advantage of all it has to offer not just during the winter season, but all year long.”
The comprehensive “My North Hempstead” app provides a myriad of services to Town residents including recycling and garbage pick-up schedules based on your location.-- you can even sync those schedules to your smartphone calendar. It also allows for photos to be submitted with service requests when reporting a pothole or a non-functioning streetlight.
The “My North Hempstead” app is now available for FREE in the iTunes and Google Play app stores. You can download the app by logging on to www.northhempsteadny.gov/mynhapp.
