Our Information Desk personnel will do their very best to get you in touch with the proper City Department in order to address your concern.

Our Mobile and Online Service Request system is not monitored 24-hours a day, or on weekends or holidays. The City Hall Information Desk does not handle Joliet Police or Fire Department related calls or emergencies.  If you require emergency assistance please dial   9-1-1 or if you require non-emergency Police or Fire assistance dial  (815) 726-2491.



City of Joliet residents are able to report non-emergency concerns such as overgrown grass violations, street light outages, potholes and more to the City Hall Information Desk.

All concerns and complaints submitted are reviewed by Information Services personnel and forwarded to the appropriate City Department for response.  Any concerns or complaints submitted after normal business hours will be processed the following business day.  City Hall hours of operation are: Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (except on observed holidays).

When submitting a service request, please be prepared to provide the exact location of the property that is a concern. We cannot submit a service request without the specific address location and only one address location per service request is permitted.  All concerns must be located within Joliet City limits. You may lodge your service request or concern in different ways. Methods and instructions are described below.
