Report Problems

Our office hours are from 7 am to 3:30 pm, Monday through Friday. To report a problem with a sign, we can be reached by calling Grant County Public Works at 509-754-6082 and asking for the Sign Shop. We are located at the Public Works Complex at:

We at Grant County encourage the public to report any sign problem you encounter and most of all report missing or down "Stop" and "Yield" signs. This can be done easily by phoning Grant County Multi Agency Communications Center (MACC) dispatch at 509-762-1160.
