Fix (y)our City!

korja.us is a new service that helps citizens to report about problems in their area. Problems can be physical / social / environmental, you name it. Reported problems can be tagged on a map with explanations and picture. korja.us is a nice way to bring up issues and get them a broader audience. This service increases the likelihood that a problem will be recognized and fixed. If you know somewhere is a problem just make a report!
