If you wish to have an email subscription and a wireless subscription, just sign up twice, once with your email and once with your wireless number.

Selecting Your Subscriptions

List screen

If you are signing up from one of the website landing pages, you will be presented with a list of available topics. The topic list is organized by folders and can be expanded in some areas to see more topics.

Click on the checkboxes next to the topics to subscribe.

The blue 'i' provides description information. Positioning your cursor on the 'i' displays the description.

If you are signing up using a wireless number, you will see a smaller list. Not every topic is suitable for text messages. Topics available for wireless communications are designated with an small, black wireless icon to the right of the topic name.

Answering Questions

Questions screen

Everyone who signs up will be asked for their zip code. Providing this information will only enhance the service. Staff will be able to communicate specifically with certain zip codes on each topic, if the need arises. The zip code information will also be useful during emergency situations when communicating to a certain geographic area is necessary.

The zip codes only cover the Raleigh service area, which includes other cities serviced by Public Utilities. You can select one or more zip codes (home, work, school, etc).

Some topics will have additional questions. The answers to these questions will help staff communicate directly with subscribers who need the information.

Email communications from MyRaleigh Subscriptions will come from email accounts ending with "@info.raleighnc.gov".

All email communications will have a link to manage your MyRaleigh Subscriptions, but you can also manage your subscriptions by revisiting the Sign Up process on this website at any time.
