Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced the launch of “Nassau Now,” the County’s newest state-of-the-art mobile and web application designed to assist residents in communicating more efficiently and effectively with County government. “Nassau Now” is an online and real-time application, which provides a free and simple way for residents to use a smartphone or tablet to contact Nassau County directly.
“In today’s tech-focused world, our government has recognized that mobile applications are a great way to connect with the community,” said County Executive Mangano. “It has often been said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and with ‘Nassau Now,’ residents can quickly and easily express their concerns to Nassau County directly by sending a photo and description through the app.”
“Nassau Now” is the ultimate government app for Nassau County that features requests, events, information, news alerts, traffic advisories, forms and firsthand access to the County Executive. Residents will be able to access a calendar of free concerts, holiday shows and firework displays; receive up to the minute alert notifications relating to weather conditions and construction work zones based on your current GPS location; learn about free programs and events happening throughout Nassau County; and even take photos of concerns and send them directly to the department responsible, to ensure immediate attention and repair.
“Nassau Now” is available on the County website and via mobile application for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Android platforms. Once a resident downloads the app, they simply log in to explore and enjoy a complimentary full-access subscription to Nassau County. Residents who do not have access to the mobile app can still use “Nassau Now” through the County’s website: www.nassaucountyny.gov.
