Community-Wide Notification System
The Village of Downers Grove has implemented a Community-Wide Notification System. The Connect-CTY service allows the Village to record and send personalized voice messages across the community in just minutes, through a single phone call. Publicly available primary residential and business phones in Downers Grove have automatically been included in the system.
Residents and businesses are encouraged to register additional devices (up to three phone numbers and two e-mail addresses) by which to be contacted. To add/change information, visit the Community-Wide Notification System link.
If you do not have Internet access you may correct/add information by calling 630.434.5550.
