Need Service? Have a Question or Complaint?
We Can Help!

The Citizen Resource Center enables the City to work directly with citizens to solve issues affecting the entire community, such as:

  • tall weeds or grass
  • abandoned vehicles
  • dangerous buildings
  • traffic and streets issues
  • noise disturbances
  • trash violations
  • signs in the public right-of-way
  • a variety of others

We direct citizen requests, questions and problems to the departments which can best implement change or provide answers.
