How will the City use Blackboard Connect?

In addition to using the system to send emergency weather notifications to Oak Point residents, the City uses the service to send its citizens important messages regarding time-sensitive or common-interest issues such as street closures, water or electrical outages, and special events. The Blackboard Connect service keeps residents better informed by supplementing existing communication channels such as information bulletins and newsletters. When you register, you can choose to have messages sent to you by phone, text message, and/or email.
