LYNCHBURG, Va. - There's a new way for people in the Hill City to pay their bills. Living in an age where everything can be done in an instant, the City of Lynchburg launched a new smartphone app. City leaders say it's part of a push to make information more easily accessible.

Citizens can report issues for, say, a pot hole, take a picture of it and send it to the city's "Citizens First Desk." Community members will also have access to city council information and calendar events.

"I think we're getting an influx of people with the colleges and universities. They want to see growth. So we want to be able for citizens to find all that information and to understand Lynchburg is a great place to live, work and play,” said JoAnn Martin, director of communications and marketing for Lynchburg.
