The Village of Plain City is pleased  to introduce the new Citizen Request Portal to our residents.  The Citizen Request Portal allows Village residents to easily enter work order requests to the Public Works Department and also check current and past work request activity. 

Examples of Work Requests would be:

  • Request a  recycling bin

  • Brush or leaf pickup

  • Reporting a pot hole

  • Downed utility lines

  • Water/sewer issues

  • Traffic signal light that is not functioning

               Please do not use the Citizen Request Portal for police related complaints, utility bill questions or

household property maintenance issues.

We encourage residents to register/sign-in to the Citizen Request Portal, this ensures that you can track the status of your request and be notified when your request has been completed.

Planning to Dig?
