The new citizen portal will allow residents to receive notices via email, text message or mobile phone to access information that is of interest to them.
The City of Vaudreuil-Dorion has launched its citizen portal, a new communications channel which will give residents access to their personal information from the city’s website and allow them to peruse other topics of interest related to the municipality.
Residents are urged to register for the service in order to receive notices via email, text message or mobile phone to access information that is of interest to them such as parking, emergency notices, collection information, activities and events, municipal regulations, employment opportunities, and municipal works projects.
In addition, the portal will enable people to reply to digital surveys, make requests and consult the activity calendar. These capabilities will be followed by the implementation of a digital citizen card, online tax payment, an automated emergency call system, registration for activities, applications for permits and other options.
“The implementation of this tool will be gradual, but already, the notification system will allow us to reach people according to the type of communication they prefer and the topics they are interested in. With the addition of other modules, it will become easier for citizens to interact with their city because many of the services they use will be available in one single location,” said Mayor Guy Pilon.
Citizens will be able to enter their personal online profile from their computer but they will also be able to download the bciti+ mobile app from the App Store or Google Play.
