Electrical Department

The City of Powell clears the power lines within the alley right away.
The homeowner is responsible for making sure the overhead lines are
clear to their house. For your safety, we will disconnect and reconnect the line during regular business hours without charge.

First check to make sure that none of the circuit breakers have been
tripped off. Don’t forget to check the outside main breaker if you have one. If everything checks out, then call the electric department during regular business hours at: 754-9537 after hours, call the police department at: 754-2212 so they can dispatch the on call person.

For all line locates please call both of these numbers: Wyoming One Call at 811 or from out of state, call 1-800-849-2476.

You own the electrical service on your house. You can call an electrical contractor or you can do the work yourself. If you’re doing the work, please call the electrical department at 754-9537 for our requirements and to answer any questions you might have. As well as to schedule any overhead service drop disconnect/reconnects.

Streets/Shop Departments

Chip-Seal is the most economical way the City has found to keep the streets sealed and in good condition. The streets are currently set on a seven-year rotation. Crack-Fill is usually performed on the streets that are to be Chip-Sealed the winter and Spring prior to the Chip-Seal process.

The owner of the property is responsible for all maintenance of the sidewalks on their property. This includes all sidewalk repairs, sweeping and snow removal. Snow that is removed from the sidewalks must be placed on the property or removed entirely and is not to be placed in the City street or gutter. The same holds true for leaves and other debris as well.

Water/Wastewater

Powell Police at 754-2212 as we have a person on call 24-7

Public Health

In general, the 90-gallon containers are collected on Tuesdays & Fridays and most of the residential 300-gallon containers are collected on Mondays & Thursdays. There are, however, some exceptions to this schedule. Commercial collection goes on 6 days a week Monday thru Saturday. If there are changes due to a holiday, those changes will be published in The Tribune or posted on the City Web.

Because our charges vary according to the amount of refuse you have and what you want hauled away we ask that you call 754-3552 to obtain pricing information.

If you have items too large for your container, simply leave them in the alley a short distance from your container and we will collect those items separately. Curbside collection customers need to call to arrange pick-up time.

The Sanitation & Parks Department uses a chipper to mulch tree limbs. Please call 754-3552 to schedule a pick-up time.

The county landfill is open from 7:30 am to 5:00 pm Monday thru Saturday. The landfill is closed on Sundays and major Holidays.

These units need to have the Freon removed by a licensed operator. After that is completed, please haul them to the landfill for no charge, as the metal is recycled.
