The citizens living in rural areas have easier access to municipal services via information screens installed on village squares.
Seferihisar Municipality thanks to the donations from IZKA (Izmir Development Agency) installed kiosks displaying information on municipal services. IZKA Deputy Secretary General Murat Yılmazçoban and Seferihisar Mayor Tunç Soyer signed a protocol on granting an amount of 728.226,56 TL’s to the municipality, which corresponds to 70% percent of the budget.
The project included installment of kiosks to 8 spots of the town as Seferihisar center, Turgut, Gödence, Doğanbey, Akarca, Sığacık, Ulamış and Ürkmez. The information kiosks are intended for the usage of town locals, as well as local and foreign tourists. Some of the kiosks are placed in far villages, so that the citizens can benefit from the municipal services without having to travel to the town center.
City information kiosks include information on ongoing and finished municipal projects, events and council decisions. The users can contact the mayor and deliver comments, recommendations and request information from the PR department, inspect land fair values, can pay taxes via credit card. The visitors can get information on Cittaslow network, which Seferihisar is a member of, the historical and touristic places to visit, visit the photo gallery and get directions via online map. Community services, health associations, pharmacies, governorship and police stations are also listed.
