Antenno a new tool for info & reporting

25 March 2019

The Council is rolling out a new tool as part of its focus on improving customer service and communication. The free mobile app Antenno sends helpful updates on things like water outages, traffic snarl ups and road closures, along with posts about events, and more.

Andrew Dalziel, Porirua City’s Acting General Manager Customer and Community, says there’s no need to check multiple sources of information to get alerts about what’s going on around Porirua – Antenno will send you posts about topics and places you care about.

“You can choose to receive alerts about where you live, your workplace, your kids’ school, or any place that’s important to you – and you can opt out of receiving types of topics, at any or all of your places, so you’ll only get posts that are relevant to you,” says Mr Dalziel.

You can also use the Antenno app to tell us about something that needs fixing or report something directly to us.

“If you see some graffiti, find a pot hole, or spot a street light that’s out, you can report it quickly and easily using the app. Just go to the ‘Your reports’ menu and add a report to tell us about it. If you’ve taken a photo, you can add that to your report as well,” he says.

You’ll need to add a name and location that’s in Porirua as the report will be sent directly to Porirua City Council’s Customer Services team (and we’ll keep that information private).

“The Antenno app is address based, so doesn’t have your personal information, but if you’re making a report, it will ask for your contact details, so we can follow up if we need to.”

Download the free Antenno app today from the App Store or Google Play and save places you care about and we’ll let you know when something relevant to your chosen place(s) happens. To find out more, visit poriruacity.govt.nz/antenno

New Reports: Flood Risk From Rain And Sea Under Climate Change

One report looks at what would happen when rivers are flooded by heavy rain and storms, while the other examines flooding exposure in coastal and harbour areas and how that might change with sea-level rise.

Their findings show that across the country almost 700,000 people and 411,516 buildings worth $135 billion are presently exposed to river flooding in the event of extreme weather events...

There is near certainty that the sea will rise 20-30 cm by 2040. By the end of the century, depending on whether global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, it could rise by between 0.5 to 1.1 m, which could add an additional 116,000 people exposed to extreme coastal storm flooding. More>>
