Stalowa Wola



Buildings Department takes care of 137 housing associations with 4700 apartments. Monthly it repairs about 100 defeats, from changing a light bulb to repairing a gutter. The biggest challenge is getting to know that repair is needed. There is not a system to inform about damage automatically. The residents of Stalowa Wola can make a call or send a letter but we want to offer another solution. There are some basic examples of the functionality of such application: adding a picture to report, sending location, monitoring the progress of the repair. Is there anything else? Let’s make an application for contact between residents and property manager.

Swidnik



Commune is obliged to organize a waste deposal system for residents. Every year the Multiplicity of Świdnik collects more and more waste: in 2015 - 11 ton, in 2016 - 11,4 ton, and in 2017 - 11,7 ton. Surprisingly the number of residents, using a waste deposal system increased slightly. The costs are high and rising, in 2017 Świdnik spent 5 million on current expenditures and the income from the action was only 4 million. The money could be spent better for example on playgrounds, building a road, and street lights. How to improve the waste collection system?
