App makes submitting DOT work requests quick and easyalt
A new smart phone and Web based tool, YourGOV, allows residents to submit non-emergency service requests directly to the Department of Transportation work management system. By accessing the YourGOV Web site or using the smart device app, residents can photograph a problem and request that work be completed at a specified location.

YourGOV service requests relate to roadway issues like potholes, traffic signals, debris, signs, storm drains and sidewalks. People are able to track the progress of their requests and receive automatic updates throughout the lifecycle of the requests. YourGOV is for reporting non-emergency issues only. If immediate police or fire department response is needed, please call 911.

For more information, visit here.

Parents as Teachers program helps prepare children for schoolalt
Families with children up to five years old are invited to join Parents as Teachers, a program of Communities in Schools Marietta/Cobb County. This program gives parents the support and information needed to raise happy, healthy and successful children. There is no travel required because parent educators come to the home. Monthly or bi-monthly visits are done during the day, depending on the parents' schedules.

During the home visits, parents will learn and assess the development of their child, learn activities to do with the child to improve school readiness and learn effective parenting strategies. Free books and school supplies are provided. Monthly family gatherings, with raffles, also help create a support network of families.
