The City of Sitka Electric Department is no longer taking applications for its Heat Pump Rebate Program. The Electric Department has had 67 residents apply for the $750 rebate in just five weeks, which means that the cap of $50,250 has been reached. We appreciate the strong interest from residents and welcome feedback from those who are participating. For more information, or to give feedback, please call the Electric Department at 747-1897.
The city is now introducing a web feature which citizens can use online to initiate commonly requested work items from city crews. The feature is a customer interface page. It allows citizens to initiate requests in a variety of areas. It works like this: a customer clicks on the following link:
This brings up the Citizen Request Page. It is a simple form with a drop-down menu for topics, and fields to enter basic information. When the customer clicks “submit request,” an email work order is automatically generated that goes to the city staff member associated with that request category.
Requests to fill potholes go to Streets, to fix streetlights go to the Electric Dept., etc. When you submit the request a ‘request number’ displays; you can check the status of that request by clicking on the “check request” button and entering the request number.
