RealTerm Energy Launches MyTown, a New Smart City Solution Designed for Smaller Municipalities

By Ken Briodagh

RealTerm Energy recently launched MyTown, a new smart city app and asset management platform, made specifically for small and medium-sized municipalities, is designed to change the way local governments and citizens communicate. MyTown, now available as a free download for both Apple and Android devices, reportedly improves citizens' connections with their communities while staff and elected officials become better informed and more responsive to citizen feedback.

MyTown reportedly provides citizens with access to a wide range of public notices and events, customizable tabs such as garbage and recycling calendars, along with school and bus alerts, updates regarding road closures, parking, water-use restrictions, sidewalk construction, hospital wait-times and a great deal more. MyTown provides more than 30 different types of information sources and enables users to report problems, like a pothole, a streetlight outage, a parking concern. It also facilitates the anonymous disclosure of sensitive information to law enforcement or school administration officials via the HotLine tool. The app is also in use in more than 30 cities of various sizes and to 3.6 million citizens across North America.

“We are very excited to be launching MyTown. Our goal is to provide municipalities, regardless of their size, with access to advanced software and technologies at an extremely affordable price. Now, more than ever, MyTown is needed to improve communication between citizens and city staff and is required to support rapid and informed decision-making at city halls everywhere. We are certain that this application and asset management platform will quickly improve communities with minimal effort,” said Sean Neely, CEO, RealTerm Energy.
