We have worked hard as a city to use technology to create a safer community. Whether it be our drones used for search and rescue or locating hidden hot spots in a fire or using data analytics in the Police Dept to know in real time where crime is occurring and deploying resources swiftly to ensure prevention and safety, Sandy City is always seeking smart city tools to create community and resident security.
We have a busy, thriving city and with this fast-paced lifestyle, Sandy is always looking for ways to make life smarter, faster, and better. Our traffic light signal synchronization efforts have significantly helped the flow of commuting travel, reducing time in the car and contributing to fewer CO emissions. Through the use of Invoice Cloud, utility billing transactions save time and paper, and provide convenience. Additionally, there are many other SmartSandy technology solutions we now offer.
SmartSandy technology allows us to be a more sustainable community reducing waste and saving costs while striving towards better air quality. Our city smart water controllers efficiently sense weather patterns to only water our parks as needed. The city LED lights contribute to cost savings and lighting efficiencies. And, when it comes to transportation, Sandy leads with the adoption of our green vehicles and offering of EV stations to those who visit city facilities.
Sandy has connected the dots when it comes to conveniently engaging with the city online and on-the-go. We call this digitizing City Hall by progressively transforming all citizen-facing services online. Our mobile-first forms make it easy to complete transactions, provide surveys, and more. Our CityServe app makes it simple to report service requests via mobile. Our SandyNotify system allows you to sign up for regular updates as well as be informed via text, email, and robocall in the event of an emergency. Plus, you can tune into City Council and Planning Commissions via live online video meetings and follow us on any of the social media platforms you use everyday!
