The City of Bandera is thrilled to introduce TextMyGov, a user-friendly text messaging service aimed at keeping residents and visitors well-informed about crucial community updates. This free-of-charge service will play a vital role in providing timely information to the public.
TextMyGov enables the city to send direct text notifications regarding essential updates and local events. Residents interested in receiving city-wide notifications can easily opt-in to stay informed about Utility Services, Upcoming Events, Public Safety Alerts, and General Announcements.
Signing up is a breeze—simply text “BANDERA” to the number 91896. Upon sending the initial keyword, users will be prompted to complete the opt-in process by responding with a simple “YES.”
For those seeking more information, widgets are available on the city's website, as well as on the Marshal’s Page and the EDC page.
Moreover, event-specific text notification groups have been established. To opt-in, residents can text the following keywords to 91896:
- Text “COWBOY CAPITAL” for local event notifications.
- Text “COWBOY MARDI GRAS” for Cowboy Mardi Gras notifications.
- Text “ECLIPSE” for event notifications before, during, and after the eclipse.
