The City of Park Hills recently launched a new notification system called MessageSpring to provide city residents with important information about emergencies, notices, events and more.
Residents, employees, business owners, or others interested in receiving important communications from the city can sign up to receive notifications via the MessageSpring app, SMS/text messaging, or email.
MessageSpring subscribers can choose to receive all notifications sent by the city or choose only the notifications that are of interest to them.
The app can send notifications regarding many topics, including emergencies, road closings, water main breaks and weather announcements.
Subscribers can opt-in to receive important notices about things like bulk pickup, employment opportunities, bids on city projects, fire tag due dates, business license due dates, elections and more.
The app can send out sports information with updates on T-ball, soccer, softball leagues, youth ball, and other city-sponsored sporting programs.
