City of Jerome Improves Communication
Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KSVT-TV ) - The City of Jerome say they have increased communications with the public. Zoe Monahan with the city said they currently use the newsletter, a computer program and app for smartphones called Nixle and now Facebook.
Nixle is a product that allows the City to send out community and emergency messages via text and email. The City has been using this tool since the summer of 2013. During the summer months, constructions updates are being sent out regularly. Community events are also sent to the registered users. This was a free product and is a great tool to keep our citizens up to date on current events. Sign up for Nixle at http://www.ci.jerome.id.us/.
Information around the community is also available in the city newsletter which is available online, at the utilities office and other businesses around town.
