Dial 311 for After Hours Service

The City of Greater Sudbury maintains an answering service to take your calls 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Dial 311 to reach a live operator after regular business hours to provide information that will be forwarded to an on-call Public Works supervisor, during situations with potential for property damage:

  • flooding
  • sewer backup
  • water main breaks
  • other threats to private or public property.

Municipal facilities that are open to the public on weekends and in the evening, such as libraries, arenas and recreation centres, can be reached by direct dial. Numbers are listed on the City of Greater Sudbury website.

Tracking System for Service Requests

When you dial or email 311 with a complaint or request for municipal service, you will be asked to provide your name, address and telephone number for follow-up should municipal employees require further information.

Please note that incoming calls to the 311 call centre are recorded and may be monitored for quality control purposes.

Citizen Service Representatives enter your complaint or request into a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system which tracks when and how it is resolved. Each complaint or request is assigned a case number, which you are provided, should you wish to track the progress of your service request.

If your complaint or request is not resolved to your satisfaction, it may be forwarded to the General Manager of the responsible municipal service for further investigation. A complaint is an expression of dissatisfaction related to a City of Greater Sudbury program, service, facility, or staff member, where a citizen believes that the City has not provided a satisfactory service experience and a response or resolution is expected.

Citizens who are reporting wrongdoing, which is defined as any kind of activity that could be deemed illegal, dishonest , wasteful or a deliberate violation of City policy, may contact a confidential and anonymous Wrongdoing Hotline.
