Other City Email Lists

These traditional mailing lists are "double opt-in" style lists, meaning you must initiate the sign-up process to subscribe, and you must confirm your intent to subscribe to a list before you will receive any mailings from us. 


Each list is independently operated, so you will need a separate subscription or unsubscription for each list. We do not share your address with anyone outside of the City of Abilene. 

  1. Meetings & Agendas
  2. Road Closures
  3. Severe Weather Notifications

Subscribers to this email list will receive notification of posted Notice of Meetings for City Council and other City Boards. The notices of meetings are posted for 72 hours prior to the meeting.

Simply send a blank email, receive our confirmation email, and confirm the subscription. You must confirm your email before you will begin to receive emails from us (or confirm the unsubscription before you will be removed from the mailing list).
