City Services:

  • 311: With the winter weather often come increased potholes and other potential issues with city services. Please log any issues you find at You can also download the app for your smartphone to log on the go. Councilors are also provided a monthly report of all 311 requests made in their wards and their status.

  • Waste Management: After a recent storm, trash across the East Side was severely delayed. This coincided with a planned delay for the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday weekend.  I want to thank you all for your patience and understanding and also apologize on behalf of the City. This was not the level of service you deserve as residents. I will always work hard to share information transparently and quickly so you all can plan accordingly.

As always, please reach out to me anytime at  

With Gratitude,

Councilor Sue AnderBois
