Go to City Howl

Hello! We're launching a new project this morning. It's a website called City Howl, and basically it's a place for you to post (or read) reviews of city services. If you've had a bad experience with the Department of Streets, you can post about it there. If you've had a good experience with Parks and Recreation, you can post about it there. The idea is to bring the private impressions we all get of city services into the public sphere, and to hold city government accountable for both its successes and its failures.

As the Daily News says today, "There are plenty of online review sites for restaurants, plumbers, and even doctors, so why not government?"

About this blog
Every year, city government spends slightly more than $4 billion. Where does all that money come from? More importantly, where does it go? Are we getting the most bang for our tax buck? “It's Our Money” is a joint project between Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, funded by the William Penn Foundation, designed to answer these questions.
