Good afternoon, neighbors!
With the spring weather comes great days of sunshine, but also lots of rain, sleet, winds, and storms. As this kind of weather occurs, drains can become plugged and start to flood streets and sidewalks, potholes can form, and you might be in need of some help.
We’d like to make you aware of some steps you can take to report these issues.
A public services issue is any issue pertaining to streets, sewers, and sidewalks (public property in your neighborhood). For example, if you see a pothole needing repair, a street flooding, or tree branches that have fallen onto the sidewalk or street, these are public service issues.
