We recognize the value of government-to-citizen communication, and the crucial role of mobile technology in today’s society. That’s why Buncombe County is going mobile! You can now get the latest community information and resources right on your iPhone, Android, or Blackberry. We’ve signed up to publish Buncombe County news, events, maps, and services through a revolutionary mobile app called YouTown.
YouTown allows the publication of various types of public data – all of which is easily viewable on your mobile device. Using an easy-to-navigate interface, you can browse recent news articles, check out local events, and find resources for civic services. Here’s a quick look at what Buncombe County is currently offering on YouTown:
• Maps allow you to quickly locate county departments, parks, pools, voting locations, etc… using the familiar Google-map format.
• News is your one-stop shop for staying up-to-date with social media posts, department updates, etc.
• Events keeps you informed about commissioner meetings, ribbon cuttings, holiday closings, etc.
• Services is a convenient tool for learning about WIC, flu shots, marriage licenses, etc.
You have the power to sort and filter the publications within YouTown, so you get customized Buncombe County information that’s relevant to your lifestyle.
