City of Tehachapi Announces Text My Gov

Text My Gov Logo

The City of Tehachapi will launch the Text My Gov application for easier general communications by the public to the city (non-emergency) on Thursday, April 8. 

Text My Gov allows the public to send text messages directly to city hall. Utilizing keywords that will trigger a response to answer the question or concern. For those that prefer to utilize text messages as a form of communication as 81% of the American public this allows you to bypass using the website or automated phone system and will be a quicker and easier way to get the information to us. 

We encourage the City of Tehachapi residents to text Hi to (661) 441-3844 (the new dedicated text number for Tehachapi City Hall) and they will receive a welcome message and you are now entered into our new text system.  Then enter a keyword, ie; pothole, then the reporting form to our request tracker system will be sent via text so a pothole can be reported and then routed to the proper department. 

In addition, the Text My Gov app allows for people to opt-in to receiving non-emergent notifications from city hall by texting Tehachapi to 91896. The notifications will be reminders for events (Mountain Festival, 4th of July, Farmers Market, Blood Drives) and other similar activities in the City of Tehachapi. 

The Tehachapi Police Department still utilizes NIXLE as the urgent public safety notification system and Text My Gov is not a substitute.
