Resources Not Available Unless Flood Impact Is Reported

Was your residential or commercial property affected by the recent storm? Please report any damage to your property by calling 2-1-1, or entering the information through the online damage assessment reporting system. Damage reports are used by Polk County Emergency Management in order to compile the evidence needed for an emergency declaration through FEMA. Federal resources do not become available unless a certain threshold of damages is met.

Debris Pick Up

Regular garbage collection in Pleasant Hill is on Wednesday’s. All garbage must be place inside the garbage cart to be collected. If you have additional refuse, you may place extra trash bags or large items on the curb with the appropriate sticker to be picked up on your regular garbage day.
