Manjimup has become the first local government in the country to launch the mobile app Antenno to provide up-to-date information relevant to residents at the touch of a button.

The local government-specific app launched yesterday and was done in partnership with IT-based service provider Datacom.

Manjimup shire president Paul Omodei said he hoped the app would be embraced by the community.

“Antenno will provide an important link between the Shire of Manjimup and anyone with an interest in our region,” he said.

“The type of information being released includes shire announcements, planned road closures or roadworks, upcoming shire approved-events, rubbish and recycling reminders and more.”

To celebrate Antenno’s launch, the Manjimup Shire Council is holding a code word competition every Friday this month.

App subscribers can enter to win a hamper of local produce to the value of $275 and there will be four hampers up for grabs.

The council will take the app on the road with demonstrations in Manjimup, Pemberton, Northcliffe and Walpole from July 18.

Antenno is available from the App Store or Google Play and is anonymous.
