Please note: These online submissions are not intended to be used for emergency situations or police reports. All emergencies should be called in directly to 911. 

The City of Owatonna online reporting tools are an easy way for residents to report concerns directly to the City and have department staff follow up to resolve the issues. Please use a detailed address, description, and photo (if possible) to give as much information to City staff so they can investigate and determine the best way to address your concerns. You are encouraged to enter your email address on reports in order to get automated updates on the status of your issue as City staff work to resolve it. This system is best suited to respond to service requests like potholes, traffic signals, broken park equipment, etc. that can be assigned to staff and addressed in a timely manner. 

Issues requiring immediate attention or those dealing with public safety should be reported directly to the Steele County Non-Emergency Line at 507-451-8232 or 911 as this system is not monitored 24/7.
