This survey asks your opinion about subscribing to a free mobile-based service to receive official notifications from Newtown Township regarding emergencies, public meetings, special events, public service notices, Parks and Recreation programs, road closures, etc.

A system recommended by the Newtown Technology Committee is Savvy Citizen (view the video below).

This service would cost Newtown Township about $300 per month (just about what a Supervisor is paid each month!) and would be FREE to residents who sign up (opt-in) to use it.

Please take this short survey to let me know if you would opt-in to such a FREE service if it were available. Your comments are especially valuable. A representative of Savvy Citizen is scheduled to attend a Board of Supervisors Work Session on September 16, 2019, to answer questions about the service. This session will help the Supervisors decide whether or not to subscribe to this service in 2020. 
No identifying information is collected via this survey unless you opt-in to provide such information for purposes of follow-up by subscribing to John Mack's email newsletter.

DISCLAIMER: This is not an official Newtown Township approved survey. Its purpose is solely to inform John Mack – a Newtown Supervisor – of the public’s opinion regarding this issue.
