Summit County to unveil mobile app

Later this month, the county will unveil a new Summit County app that will allow users to access the county website via any mobile device.

"We are a very technically savvy community and most people access the county website from a mobile device," Julie Booth, Summit County Public Information Officer, said. "Through a mobile app, we want to reach everyone. We are trying to bring people up to speed and it is just another way to access Summit County."

The county will launch "SummitUT" on the Google Play Store for Android users and on Apple’s app store at the end of February.

From the app, users will be able to access the calendar, the agenda and alert centers, and the staff directory, among other portals.

"We’re bringing the government to the palm of their hand," Booth said. "It helps people reach us quickly and efficiently."

Another benefit of the app is it could save residents money, Booth said.

Every transaction that is completed within a county department, in person, is estimated to cost the county $17, Booth said. But for every transaction completed online, it only costs the county $4.

"We take that into consideration," Booth said. "The money is huge for everyone, especially if it saves taxpayers dollars."

The county began exploring the concept last year as it looked into revamping the website. The website was updated in August.

"We are on the cutting edge of this and we’re happy to be," Booth said.
