Athe­ni­ans will soon be able to lodge a com­plaint with mu­nic­i­pal au­thor­i­ties or pay a park­ing fine elec­tron­i­cally.

In a press con­fer­ence yes­ter­day, Athens Mayor Gior­gos Kami­nis un­veiled plans for an online ser­vice for cit­i­zens that will give users ac­cess to about 80 mu­nic­i­pal fa­cil­i­ties. Us­ing a com­puter or smart phone, cit­i­zens will be able to view data on the mu­nic­i­pal bud­get, find out how to get a li­cense for a bar or restau­rant and no­tify au­thor­i­ties of prob­lems such as bro­ken street lamps.

Kami­nis said th­e­ser­vice will give cit­i­zens more over­sight with­out hav­ing to visit any mu­nic­i­pal of­fices.
