CAUAYAN SMART CITY APP
With its aim to empower the 65 barangays of Cauayan City in the efficient delivery of public service through digital technologies that will incite citizen engagement and awareness, the Local Government Unit of Cauayan (LGU) initiated the creation of the Barangay Website, a platform exclusively designed to enable the barangays promote their individual profiles, products and services that can be readily and easily accessed not only by the residents but by anyone around the globe with just few clicks on their mobile phones or computers. The Barangay Website also serves as the medium for the people to directly communicate with their respective barangays in a fast and real-time manner without actually going to the barangays, which then saves time, effort and resources both on the part of the barangays and the people.
The Barangay Website was soft-launched last June 29, 2018 during the Mass Oath Taking Ceremony of the newly- elected barangay officials. At present, it is continuously updated with the profiles of the barangays. This is an innovation in the management of the affairs of the barangays and is one way of encouraging the officials and the public to embrace technology and utilize its advantages for an efficient implementation of the projects. This, when taken as a whole, is contributory to the development not only of the barangay but of the entire city.
