3-1-1 Service Returns

Dear New Orleans Neighborhood Leader,

It pleases me to announce the return of 3-1-1 service for Orleans Parish, a critical component of City Hall’s upcoming AskNOLA initiative.  Although we are still a step or two away from having live operators field every incoming call, today’s reactivation of the 3-1-1 information hotline marks a milestone on our path toward a fully-functioning issue reporting system.  I will keep you informed as future phases of AskNOLA are unveiled.

For now, please take a moment to view, print, share and link your websites to “The AskNOLA Guide“.

Shortcut for webmasters:
The guide gives citizens a preview of all 3-1-1 services currently being offered at the City of New Orleans Hotline.

Stay tuned for more information next week!
