To start a conversation via text message, simply text the word “Hello” to MC311 (62311). Ask McAllen immediately responds with a short greeting, explaining the ways the service can be used, with a link to sign up for text message notifications.

The Ask McAllen web chat service can be found at www.mcallen.net, where both desktop and mobile users will notice the feature on the bottom right section of their browser window. Clicking on the icon launches a chat window, greeting residents and prompting them to enter their questions or service requests.
