Roadway Maintenance Requests
YourGOV, a smart phone and web-based work request tool provided by the Cobb County Department of Transportation (DOT), allows citizens to submit non-emergency service requests directly to the DOT work management system.
By accessing the YourGOV website or using the smart device app, citizens can photograph a problem and request that work be completed at a specified location.
YourGOV service requests relate to roadway issues such as potholes, traffic signals, debris, signs, and sidewalks. By creating an account in the app's settings menu, citizens are also able to track the progress of their requests and receive automatic updates throughout the lifecycle of their requests.
To make a request, search for “YourGOV” in your app store or visit yourgov.cartegraph.com. If you were a YourGOV user prior to April 12, 2016, please register for a new account with your previously used email address to use the upgraded app and access your work request history. After signing up for an account, follow the steps below to report an issue.
YourGOV is for reporting NON-EMERGENCY issues only. If immediate police or fire department response is needed, please call 911. Utilize YourGOV when it safe to do so; do not text and drive.
