Residents can "Get Connected" during the Fair

New programs increase the way residents stay informed about County activities

(Port Orchard, WA) - Fairgoers have a great opportunity to sign up for a suite of new customer services at this year’s County Fair. At the “Get Connected” booth in the Pavilion residents can sign up for electronic notification, learn about electronic service requests, and discover a new web site designed for 24-hour self service.

At the booth, located on the west wall of the Pavilion, residents can sign up for the Kitsap Electronic Notification System (https://public.govdelivery.com/accounts/WAKITSAP/subscriber/new). This new service provides notifications, either by e-mail or text message, from a myriad of subjects subscribersGovDelivery icon choose. They also choose the frequency of notifications and can maintain their account as their needs change. Residents can choose from various County calendars, employment opportunities, inclement weather information and other subjects. Each time new information is posted to the County’s web site subscribers receive notification of the change.
