Capitalizing on the popularity and speed of texting, the City’s Public Information Division in January launched an outreach program that allows residents to opt-in to receive City news and information about events and Public Works projects via text. The program is possible through a one-year contract with Lake Forest-based telecom company Ytel. Less than a month after introducing the program, more than 180 residents have signed up. Texting joins the City smartphone app, social media channels, website and The Leaflet in ensuring residents have ample opportunity to keep abreast of City news, delivered through whatever channel they choose.
