Service Requests 100% open

Buffalo, NY

What data is expected?

Non-emergency service requests (which some cities facilitate by dialing 3-1-1), covering issues such as graffiti, broken traffic lights, noise complaints, parking law enforcement, and potholes. Open service request data provides transparency about what types of requests are being requested and where, as well as how quickly requests are resolved. For Census purposes, service request data should at a minimum include: request type, responsible city department, location, and when the service was requested and fulfilled. (More info)
