If you have already subscribed to receive information about specific topics, the appearance of the emails from the City of Sebastopol that you receive will change. You will now receive a brief message (e-alert) with a link to the page(s) containing any updates to your chosen topic(s). The “From” field will remain “City of Sebastopol.” Please add to your address book to ensure that you receive our emails.

Click here if you wish to update your preferences. Preference updates clear previous subscriptions. If you are updating your topic preferences you will need to select all topics that you are interested in, even if you have already subscribed to them in the past.

There will also be links to “Update Preferences” or “Unsubscribe” at the bottom of each e-alert. 

In addition to the city website, we frequently post news and updates on our social media pages. Please consider following us on FacebookX (formerly Twitter), or NextDoor.
