Typical calls involve the following claim scenarios - For the reports with asterisk (*) below, a distinction must be made on whether or not the person is filing a claim for damage/injury, or if they are asking for service, such as having someone from the County respond to remove a tree from their property, which should be referred to the Department of Transportation:
  1. A County vehicle struck my vehicle causing damage.
  2. A County snow plow struck my vehicle/mail box or property causing damage.
  3. I slipped and fell on County property causing an injury.
  4. I was injured on a Ride On bus.
  5. *A County tree fell on my property/vehicle and caused damage.
  6. *My vehicle was damaged by a pothole on a County road.
-For tree related issues, please send an additional service request to Request to Inspect, Remove or Prune County Tree.
