For an update on existing cases, please contact 480-782-4320.

Code Enforcement

Residents are still encouraged to report graffiti. Staff will be able to remove it promptly as they do not have to interact with others during the graffiti-removal process. To report graffiti, call or text the Graffiti Hotline at 480-782-4322 (line is available 24 hours); email the Blight Team; or make a report using the City’s PublicStuff app.

On March 27, 2020, Congress passed a federal stimulus package known as the CARES Act. This Act includes the temporary Relief for Workers Affected by Coronavirus Act set out in Title II, Subtitle A. Section 2102 of the CARES Act creates a new temporary federal program called Pandemic Unemployment Assistance (PUA). 

PUA is a new program that provides benefits to individuals who are not otherwise eligible for Unemployment Insurance. Applications for PUA will be processed beginning the week of May 12 and payments will begin for eligible claimants that same week. DES will attempt to reach out to clients if additional information is needed regarding their eligibility. Individuals who have already submitted an application and have been denied should not apply again, as DES will be implementing PUA to those who have been denied dating back to Feb. 2. The $600 Federal Pandemic Unemployment Compensation benefits will be retroactive as of March 29, 2020.

Get full details at Pandemic Unemployment Assistance.

Both wait lists are currently closed. If you already applied and need to follow-up with our staff on the status of your application, please contact the Housing and Redevelopment Office at 480-782-3200.

As of March 13, the City suspended water meter shut-off. Washing hands is critical to protect public health. Water customers who have previously had their water shut off should reach out to Utility Billing and the City will work to restore their water services.

During this time, customers will continue to accrue charges for water, reclaimed water, sewer and solid waste services. We encourage customers to continue making full or partial payments towards their utility bill when possible.

The City provides online and phone payment methods 24/7. Customers who may be experiencing difficulties in paying are asked to contact us as quickly as possible to discuss different payment options at 480-782-2280.
