Will there be a way to positively identify incoming calls which are made by the city using the system?
The caller-ID number for calls generated by the Connect-CTY service will be the same as the City Hall number: (818) 706-1613. In addition, every message will begin with the same standard announcement: “Hello, this is (name) from the City of Westlake Village calling with an important message from the city hall ”. The message content will follow this standard introduction.
