Who Ya Gonna Call? Saturday, Sep 18 2010 

Have you ever wondered what do I do about this old abandoned car or about this pothole on my street or about this shopping cart full of junk or my noisy neighbors? You’re in luck if you live in Berkeley or San Francisco, just dial 311 and report the problem. San Francisco also lets you report issues on Twitter @sf311. To learn more about San Francisco’s 311 program visit http://www.sf311.org/ To learn more about Berkeley’s 311 program visit http://www.ci.berkeley.ca.us/PressReleaseMain.aspx?id=45976

311 is a non-emergency call system that many cities have instituted, in part to reduce the number of 911 calls they receive for non-emergency issues. Please still call 911 for emergencies. Here is a helpful link of the various cities across the country that have instituted the 311 system http://www.911dispatch.com/info/311map.html
