Exploring the City's Website
Over the last few days I've received some emails that prompted me to do something a little different. While I'm always happy to help people connect with city services, our website has some pretty terrific resources that are available to all residents.
I thought I would highlight a few of them. This list is certainly not comprehensive, but is a response to some of the request I get for information. Hope this helps you when you're searching for some information.
A general "catch all" of concerns, observations, praise and complaints. Some of the topics that you can "Report A Problem" include:
- Abandoned Vehicles
- Animal Control
- Recycling/Refuse/Brush Collection
- Taxi Cabs
- Snow Removal
- Sidewalk Concerns
- Traffic Signals/Street Lights and Signs
- Drinking Water
- Metro Feedback
- Parking Enforcement
- Building Inspection
- Weeds and Overgrown Vegetation
- Exterior Housing
- Interior Housing
