PublicStuff is a digital communications system for residents to submit real-time requests in their neighborhoods. Accessed by traditional web browser, smartphone app, phone, or SMS, residents can use the system to submit issues, such as road maintenance or waste management, and create an issue tracking ticket. Co-founders Lily Liu and Vincent Polidoro began to develop PublicStuff in 2009 and officially launched the service in 2010. To date, PublicStuff is used in approximately 250 cities in the United States. In 2015, PublicStuff was acquired by Accela, a San Ramon, CA-based Govtech company.
