ONLINE POWTS MAINTENANCE REPORTING
POWTS Maintenance Reporting - search and login screen
Effective as of May 11, 2010, all completed maintenance reports will now be required to be entered electronically by the service provider/pumper. Service providers will enter their completed reports on the above designated website regardless if the maintenance performed was a result of a mailed notice or not. Notices mailed to the County from service providers or property owners will no longer be accepted by the Code Enforcement Office.
An annual $5.00 administrative fee will be placed as a special assessment/charge on the property tax bill. This annual fee is used to fund the program costs asscociated with tracking and enforcing the maintenaince of sanitary systems.
A recent change has occured to the online reporting that now allows property owners the ability to search and view their sanitary system information and previous maintenance dates. The link above will bring you to the search screen. From here you enter only one box to search by, i.e. last name, fire number - no street name (N5555, W5555), or sanitary permit number (starting with either s or o).
Service providers will use the same search screen but will have to login in order to file a report. Once logged in, the service provider remain logged in as long as they do not log off during the day.
Please contact the Code Enforcement Office at (920) 929-3139 if you have any questions about the special assessment or the new reporting process.
