Communications Department - Connecting with You!

Want to know what's going on in your hometown? Want the information to come to you instead of having to search for it yourself? We're here to do just that!

We use the latest technology to keep in touch with our residents, businesses and visitors 24 hours a day, seven days a week. From our award-winning Rowlett Television Network, RTN16 programs to our weekly and monthly electronic city newsletters and notifications, you are able to decide exactly what information you want to receive and how you would like to receive it.

How can you get Rowlett news?

Cable TV and streaming video

Not only do we broadcast the latest news and information on the RTN16 cable access channel, but we provide online and on demand access to RTN16 right from your computer through streaming video.

Electronic newsletter

You can subscribe to our monthly Mayor's Spotlight newsletter and/or the weekly Friday @ 5 updates, and we will email or text you with a link to the newsletters every time they are updated. You can also find them on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Wait, there's more!

Since social media is the method so many of us use to instantly keep up with news, we are on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, plus you can sign up for text messages and email.

Opinion polls and surveys 

We want to hear from you, too. From time to time, we will post opinion polls and surveys on this site to get your input. In the meantime, please send your comments to us by email.

Below are the links to the news outlets we just talked about above.
