Emergency Response Efforts and Contacts

June 26, 2024

We appreciate all of our hard working city employees helping to restore our community after yesterday's storms! As a reminder, our City crews are only able to remove trees and limbs from the City right-of-way (streets, sidewalks, & alleys). City crews are unable to go onto your private property. After we have cleared any trees or limbs causing traffic hazards we will begin cleaning up brush. Brush & debris from a tree in the City's right-of-way can be picked up by City crews as long as the debris is located in the right-of-way areas. For questions, please contact 311 by emailing [email protected], texting 812-645-6811, or calling 311 .

If you notice a fallen power line or safety hazard involving electrical poles, call Duke Energy at 800-343-325. If your power is out, you can report it to Duke Energy online, by texting ‘OUT’ to 57801, or by calling Duke Energy at 800-343-3525.

For reporting downed trees, tree limbs, or other storm debris report it to the City via our 311 citizen contact center. You can go report email [email protected] or text 812-645-6811. Please include detailed location information and photos when possible.

Our teams are already responding to storm-related incidents around the City. Please be patient as we anticipate there will be many requests for assistance.
