City of Zachary Launches TextMyGov New Text Alert and Text Messaging Service

The City of Zachary is excited to introduce TextMyGov text alerts, a new messaging service aimed at keeping residents informed about important updates. This service will deliver timely notifications directly to residents' phones regarding road closures, emergencies, holiday schedules, garbage collection, and other pertinent information. Texts will be sent only when necessary, ensuring citizens stay informed when it matters most. Residents will still receive general updates through social media, the city website, and email.

The launch of TextMyGov's text alert system is scheduled for the week of May 13th. Keep an eye out for messages from 91896, which will be legitimate alerts from TextMyGov. If you wish to stop receiving texts, simply text STOP. If you haven't received an initial message, you can opt-in by texting ZACHARY to 91896. Upon sending this keyword, you'll receive a confirmation message prompting you to reply with "YES" to start receiving notifications.

In addition to the Text Alert Service, TextMyGov offers another convenient feature: residents can quickly seek assistance from the City of Zachary by texting 225-681-8898 with keywords like "news," "trash," "water," and more. Initiate a conversation with the city by texting "Hi" to 225-681-8898, allowing you to report issues like broken water lines, power outages, or drainage problems. Please note, this feature is separate from text alerts; while the city sends alerts, this feature empowers residents to report issues directly via text.

To opt-in for city alerts, text ZACHARY to 91896. For immediate assistance, text "Hi" to the City of Zachary at 225-681-8898. Learn more by clicking the link below.
