ROMEOVILLE – Messaging systems have become a way for local governments to quickly alert their residents about an emergency or some other type of event they should know about.

The village of Romeoville announced it will be offering a new “Smart Messaging” system to alert residents about situations such as boil orders, evacuation notices and crime alerts, as well as road closures and water main breaks.

This is a new system and will not carry over contacts from the previous text notification system used by the village, according to a news release. Smart Messaging will allow users to choose to receive community-related messages such as upcoming events, news releases and other urgent notifications.
