OROVILLE - People who are sick of the growing trash and homeless problems in Oroville’s parks, got together on Saturday to learn about the app “Park Watch Report.”

The director of the Feather River Recreation Park District told Action News Now that the app is a collection site for park-related information.

And it allows people to post their concerns that are related to vandalism, overflowing trash and other quality of life issues.

The district then receives the citizen’s complaint and takes appropriate action to fix them.

Janet Peterson is the CEO of the company behind the app and says it's important for everybody to speak up for the sake of the community.

“You cannot allow litter and other kinds of things to deter people they have to feel safe they have to feel welcome they have to want to come here and that’s what this is intended to do,” Peterson said.

The app is available for free on iTunes and the Google Play store.

We've had a mostly sunny valley with a few more clouds over the mountains today, but it's been another beautiful day with warmer highs than yesterday. Much warmer weather is headed our way this weekend... enjoy, but stay cool!
