Kawartha Lakes rolls out new ways to keep cottagers connected
KAWARTHA LAKES— The City has recently launched a brand new website with features designed to make it easy for cottagers stay connected.
The website allows subscribers to receive weather alerts, news and event information by e-mail. Also available is a brand new mobile app called Pingstreet that people can download onto their mobile phone.
“Pingstreet users will receive weather and emergency notifications directly to their phone,” explained Cheri Davidson, Manager of Communications, Advertising and Marketing. “If the power is out or you’re out of the area, you can still stay informed on your phone.”
Pingstreet also allows users to access the latest news and events as well as waste and recycling information.
“We want our residents to have peace of mind knowing that we can reach them quickly in situations when weather or emergencies may impact their property while they are away,” continued Davidson. “We would like as many people as possible to download the app before flood season arrives.”
The app is free to download and can be found in the app store on any smart phone or at the bottom of the homepage on the City website www.kawarthalakes.ca. Residents are also encouraged to visit www.kawarthalakes.ca/subscribe to sign up to receive City news by e-mail.
