textingThe City of Vicksburg has recently implemented a new texting service. This service allows City leaders to communicate faster and more effectively with their constituents. The texting service will also be used to send out notices of events, alerts, boil water notices and general information pertaining to City government and Vicksburg. Citizens can opt-in by texting keywords to the new service at 95577. 

Signing up is easy. To opt-in, you simply text one or more of the following keywords to 95577

Once you opt-in, the system will ask for your name. Respond with your name and that's it. All done.

Texting is the most effective form of communication available today. According to recent surveys, 98% of all text messages are opened. By utilizing texting as a communications medium, the City will be able to disseminate information faster and more efficiently than ever before. With a push of a button, you will be able to receive information about emergencies, events, notices, and other important news that may be relevant to you.

We hope you will take advantage of this new service.
