Dallas introduces free E-Alerts
This new feature helps citizens keep up-to-date with the City of Dallas.
DALLAS The City of Dallas today introduced “E-Alerts,” a free online resource to keep residents connected with City Hall and access the latest news and information affecting their neighborhoods. Residents can learn about a variety of topics including Green Dallas alerts, council and committee agendas and briefings, and Trinity River Corridor project updates.
To sign up, visit www.dallascityhall.com, click on the E-Alerts icon and enter your email address. Residents can then select which E-Alerts they would like to receive. The new service improves access to city information, reduces use of staff time and resources, and saves the city money previously spent on printing and mailing of publications.
"The City of Dallas has made open government a priority," said City Manager Mary K. Suhm. "We are excited about this new feature as further example of our ongoing efforts to increase public input and involvement in government."
“The E-Alerts service makes it easier for the public to automatically receive information the city posts on any given topic of interest to them,” said Public Information Office Managing Director Frank Librio. “Dallas strives to keep residents informed and build a sense of community, and this is yet another way we are accomplishing that goal.”
