Register for public alert

The new public alert system will allow the city to notify residents of water interruption, road closure updates, storm management and other emergency situations. Register all email, landline phone numbers, and cell phone numbers at your residence to get voicemail, email and text messages of situations that might concern you.

  • If you do not know your billing account number, use any four digit number and it will updated by the city.
  • If you do not have a landline number, put the same phone number in both "Phone Number" and "Cell Number" so you receive both voicemail and text.
  • Make sure you add your street address for address specific alerts.
  • Each person with a cell phone will need to fill out the registration separately.
