Emergency Information

During the flooding the Town of Montrose experienced, I found it difficult to disperse emergency information to Montrose residents.  To help avoid this situation in the future, I am making the suggestion for you to sign up for updates.  Go to our website www.townofmontrose.com and click on the Subscribe to Updates tab.  This was suggested by a resident who received the notice about getting the free water test kits.  I sincerely hope you will think about this suggestion.

Thank you for your consideration.

Sincerely,

Julie L. Bigler
