City Of Spokane Offers Snow Information Texting Service
PRESS RELEASE FROM THE CITY OF SPOKANE: The City of Spokane is launching a texting service to let citizens know about parking restrictions that are in place as part of snow removal efforts. This is a pilot project designed to test the interest and effectiveness of such a service.
To sign up for this service, citizens can send a text to 509.385.5775. Text the word "Brownes" to that number if you live in Browne's Addition, the word "Hills" if you live along an arterial or in a residential hill route—those numbered 20 and above on our residential plow route map, and the word "Parking" if you live outside of these areas.
The text service will complement the City's other citizen communications on snow, including information on City's website, on Facebook, and Twitter, and on CityCable 5.
As part of a citywide effort to improve customer service and communications with citizens, the City is working on an update to its website, enhance use of social media tools, and increase the number of services will be offered online.
