From the CIO

“In the simplest terms, My Chattanooga is a data-centric single identity experience for citizens in Chattanooga. It is creating a unique and exciting way citizens interact with their city on any device at any time, making not only conducting business with the City of Chattanooga easy, friendly, and fast, but also the way you connect to the community itself.

“Imagine logging in to your app or website and seeing all your related information at hand. Your property tax history, 311 requests, trash pick-up day, property information, what utility companies service your residence, and so much more. Imagine the ease of booking a facility, a round of golf, or applying for a business license. Want to reach out to your City Councilperson? Need to submit a 311 service request? Or perhaps you need to look up a public record or document. But that’s regular stuff. Imagine all the new ways you could interact with businesses and other citizens in the city.

“Imagine the future of what YOUR Chattanooga can be… That is the very essence of what the My Chattanooga initiative is all about, and you can help shape that future.”

That means occasionally making concessions between how I might suggest we do something in the proverbial “perfect world” versus the tools we might use to ensure success.

“Our” Chattanooga

The City of Chattanooga’s primary website, chattanooga.gov, was developed more than eight years ago, before smartphones were ubiquitous. It has eight-plus years of editing by hundreds of hands, and it’s dated, bloated, and in desperate need of an overhaul.
