See something that needs attention from the City in your neighborhood? Now, all you need to do is “click it to fix it.” Since 2012, Code Enforcement and Public Works have been using “SeeClickFix“, an online reporting tool, to track and rapidly respond to resident concerns about everything from potholes to piles of trash. There is also an app that folks can download for on-the-go issue reporting.

Burlington has one of the shortest response times of any municipality using the service, so you can be assured that your concern won’t go unnoticed. Of course, you can still call in any concerns to Code Enforcement (863-0442) or Public Works (863-9094) at any time. By working together with our amazing City staff, I know that we can make even the smallest of fixes add up to big improvements in neighborhood quality of life!

On the bike parking front, I am currently working on an ordinance change that will provide more bike parking in both commercial and residential developments. I will also be advocating for the creation of secure bike parking locations in the downtown core as part of our larger examination of parking in Burlington. I am convinced that if we build it, more bikers will come!” – Max
