City of Aiken Untilizes TextMyGov


The City of Aiken announces the launch of TextMyGov, a texting platform that enhances communication and engagement between the city government and its residents. TextMyGov offers a simple and convenient way for residents to connect with the City of Aiken using keywords and key phrases in text messaging.

TextMyGov introduces a new era of instant and personalized communication, empowering residents to actively participate in local government affairs. By texting specific keywords or key phrases related to their interests, such as “Athletics” or “Parks,” residents can access the information and resources they need quickly and outside of traditional business hours.

 In addition to residents submitting queries, TextMyGov will provide real-time updates, informing residents about important announcements by opting into an established City text list. Text the following to 91896

AIKENRAINALERT (Rain Alerts),  AIKENROADCLOSURE (Road Closure Notices) or AIKENTRASH (Trash Notices}

Aiken residents can start utilizing TextMyGov by texting their interests or questions to 803-989-7779. It is important to note that this system only recognizes keywords and phrases; for best results, do not send lengthy questions or statements.

  For more information on TextMyGov or other City of Aiken communications and community engagement information, please contact Gary Meadows, City of Aiken Media Coordinator
