24-7 Access to Councilors

accessBirmingham’s City Council is available 24-7 thanks to new technology. There are several ways to access your public officials.  The fastest and most convenient is the new smartphone app recently unveiled. You can email photos and alert 3-1-1 instead of calling. The City Council also has a new website which offers daily news updates, and includes the email and cell phone number for each councilor.  Social media has provided an excellent way to have open communication with the citizens of the city. Particularly helpful is a YouTube channel which includes videos that inform and educate about everything happening across nine districts. Residents are encouraged to attend town hall meetings which are held by individual councilors every few months. For more information go to or WATCH THE VIDEO.
