Piedmont Residents--Have you wondered where you go to get a garage sale permit in your city?  How about obtaining a dog license?  Do you know whom to contact when you have street maintenance issues?  Even though Piedmont is a small town, there are specific places to go, and people to call to get answers to all of these questions.  The good news is that this information is all neatly summarized for you on the following website:     http://www.ci.piedmont.ca.us/whodoicall.shtml     This page is full of contact numbers for city services.  Other valauble numbers include fire inspection, renting community facilities like the community hall, the hours of operation for City Hall, and so much more.  It is well worth printing and posting on your bulletin board at home.

Oakland Residents--The city's Department of Public Works has an amazing website with many interactive sites to inform you about their activities, and to encourage you to report issues and/or problems that might concern you, or about which you may have a question.  It also features a site called "SEECLICKFIX" which encourages you to advise them about more local problems like graffiti, illegal dumping or potholes.  It also posts information about upcoming community activities that should interest families. Addtionally, it features informational sites regarding maintenance of city parks, creeks and watersheds.  Details about bicycle and pedestrian and traffic safety services are also mentioned as just a part of their wide variety of mandated duties:  Check it out at:


So, whether you are a newcomer to either city, or a long term resident, you have a wealth of information at your fingertips.
