In the next few weeks, the Town will be transitioning to a new automated notifications system. This new system will allow subscribers to receive text messages as well as emails. All current subscriber addresses will be transferred to the new system. Current subscribers will receive an email notifying them of the changes and they will be able to edit their subscription preferences once the new system is implemented.
The Town of Leesburg maintains a number of listservs (automated email distribution lists) that provide citizens with timely, topic-specific information. If you would like to subscribe to a listserv, please follow the appropriate link below and then click on "Join or Leave".
