2017 Granicus Digital Strategy Award Winner - Creative Use of Digital Citizen Engagement

The no. 1 question the 311 Department at the City of Louisville, Kentucky receives from Louisville residents is: “When is my junk set out date?” With hard copy mail notifications to citizens not being enough to properly inform citizens, the City set out to find a better way. Integrating with the GovDelivery Communications Cloud digital messages to citizens, the City implemented an API (Application Process Interface) that allows the City to automatically generate text and email messages to citizens with junk pick up dates and times. So far, 27,000 opt-in subscribers have signed up so far (Louisville has 180,000 total GovDelivery subscribers), and they’ve managed to reduce calls to their 311 service by more than half.
