This would be a similar system to the one the school board uses for closings, etc.
The system would be used to let residents know of:
- Water line breaks/shut offs
- Flushing of fire hydrants
- Natural disasters
- Other emergencies
We believe it would be an opt in system, so if you didn't want to be part of it you don't have to. Also looking to see if there is an option of texting for those who would prefer a text instead of a call.
Right now we do post hydrant flushings in the newspapers and on the cable access channel, but we are aware that many do not get the paper and/or do not have cable, but use satellite. Just recently the city has started a Facebook page for such information, but again not everyone has Facebook.
Your responses will be brought to Council before voting on the system. Not sure when that will be, but wanted to get an idea if it is something residents would be interested in.
Thank you for your time and please share and email this to those in Paden City.
