If you have an unpaid citation with the City of Killeen, get ready to get a reminder about it on your smartphone.

According to a press release from the City Of Killeen, the Killeen Municipal Court is advising those with court citations to expect calls and texts alerting of a requirement to appear or submit payment. Ignoring these messages may result in the issuance of a warrant for arrest.

Phone messages will come from 254-501-7850 and text messages will come from 673-29. Killeen Municipal Court will be clearly stated as the sender or caller, followed by instructions on appearing in court.

If you're squared away on your payments to the court, you won't receive any messages. If you're unsure about your status, you can visit the court’s online payment portal to find active cases.

So don't ignore those texts or you could be in big trouble the next time you get stopped. For more information and for a link to the court's online payment portal, visit http://www.killeentexas.gov/172/Municipal-Court.
