Notification app

Bellevue Council voted at its regular meeting Tuesday to move ahead with use of the “Savvy Citizen” application that can be used to notify borough residents of important news and alerts.

The app will cost Bellevue $149 per month for the first year, although two months are free, plus a $500 set-up fee.

The expenditure was approved in a 5-3 vote with Linda Woshner, Tom Hrynda and Anthony DiTullio opposed, and Glenn Pritchard absent.
