The City of Osawatomie is "soft launching" a new communication tool: TextMyGov! This text-based software allows residents to search information, ask questions, or report issues in the community directly from their phone's regular messaging app. No internet connection required! Over the next few weeks we'll also be debuting emergency alert and general alert subscription options. Text the words "Hi," "Hello," or "Hey" to 913-557-8777 to check out the program. We'll be making continuous updates to the prompts and flows as we learn more about the community's needs and preferences, so don't be discouraged if something isn't in place just yet -- we're working on it!
