South Charleston to expand media outreach
SOUTH CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Residents of South Charleston will soon have a new way to access community information from their smartphones.
On Thursday, Mayor Frank Mullens announced during a City Council meeting that South Charleston is in the process of developing a smartphone application that will send residents alerts about any community updates. The alerts will range from street closings to trash pickup days and school closings.
"The success of the app is keeping it updated," Mullens said.
Mullens said it will only cost the city about $2,000 to have a company create the app, and it will be a free download.
