GUARDAMAR HAS become the latest local municipality to catch up with the digital revolution by introducing a new app.
The municipality’s app offers useful information about the town such as the calendar of events, pharmacies on duty, shopping and a street map.
The diputado de Buen Gobierno, Adrián Ballester, presented the app to the press alongside the mayor of Guardamar del Segura, José Luis Sáez , the new website of the town. The Diputación de Alicante, through ‘Modern Plan 7.0’ has been in charge of developing this portal, that’s more dynamic and interactive than previous efforts. The app offers residents and visitors the opportunity to find out information and carry out administrative procedures in a fast and simple way, plus providing a significant economic saving for the City Council.
“Through Plan Moderniza 7.0, the Diputación de Alicante is working, among other aspects, to create a more modern public administration, more transparent and that’s closer to the citizens. The creation of web pages is a service that we offer from the Provincial institution and that does not involve any cost to municipalities. Moreover, in the case of Guardamar del Segura, this action has allowed them to save more than 12,000€, ” explained the deputy.
The collaboration between both administrations can be found by searching for ‘MunicipApp’ , a mobile application driven by the provincial institution that offers users useful information of the municipality such as the calendar of events, pharmacies on duty, street maps, local news, press releases, contact numbers and information. The App covers a number of local municipalities, such as Albatera, Algorfa, Almoradi, Benferri, Benijofar, Callosa de Segura, Catral, Cox, Daya Nueva, Daya Vieja, Dolores, Formentera, Hondon, Jacarilla, Novelda, Orihuela, Rafal, Redovan, Rojales, San Fulgencio and San Miguel, along with Guardamar. One possible downside is that the app is presently only available in Spanish or Valencian.
