311 | Non-Emergency and City Government Services

Some cities use 3-1-1 as simple, three-digit number that residents, businesses and visitors can call to reach the City to make inquiries regarding services, report problems, check the status of issues or obtain general information. The 3-1-1 service is part of an ongoing effort to make city governments easier and more responsive to the needs of residents, its business owners and visitors.

811 | Know what’s below. Call before you dig.

[8-1-1 is a new federally mandated national “Call Before You Dig” number, created to help protect you from unintentionally hitting underground utility lines while working on digging projects. Every digging job requires a call – the bigger projects such as new construction, ponds and fountains and even smaller projects such as planting trees or shrubs. Digging can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you and potentially result in fines and repair costs.
