City of Madison residents have a few options to help them stay informed of happenings in Madison. This website, social media, departmental email newsletters & alerts, and even a texting service are used by the City.
Many City departments have their own social media accounts. Links to these can be found on department pages.

The sole purpose of this service is to better serve and keep the citizens informed of situations within the city. Text the word ‘MADISON’ to (605) 593-8008 to sign up to receive text messages.
Messages cover a range of announcements (emergencies, snow alerts, energy alerts, garbage schedule updates, water main breaks, outages, City events, street closures, and more!).
