Bixby To Launch Mass Notification System

On Wednesday, the City of Bixby will launch its new community "Blackboard Connect" mass notification system.

Residents who sign up can get a phone call from Mayor Ray Bowen about time-sensitive issues, emergencies, or weather alerts. The calls can go to their land line or cell phones.
