PONCA CITY — Ponca City officials report that the city is receiving mutual aid from Pryor, Siloam Springs, Ark., Monet, Mo., and Mid Con from Ponca City in the battle to restore power to customers.

Residents are reminded to contact an electrician if the electric meter box on their home has been pulled away from the home. Ponca City Energy cannot restore electric service to your home until this repair has been completed. 

To report a power outage call the non-emergency Ponca City Energy phone number 580-767-0405.  For emergencies call 911. Do not touch downed power lines.

City crews are working together to remove debris from streets and alleys. To report debris located in the street, please call the non-emergency Street Department phone number 580-767-0409. 

The City of Ponca City will provide two free tree debris only collection sites at Dan Moran Park, 1117. W. South Avenue and Unity Gym, 1908 E. Woodland Road.

The City of Ponca City will collect residential tree debris only, no fee.

•         Tree limbs must be cut into sections no longer than eight feet.

•         Tree limbs must be placed at the curb, not in the street and away from obstructions like poles, mail boxes, overhead wires, trees, and irrigation systems etc.  Do not place tree debris in alleyways, so alleyways are not blocked for utility access.

•        Limbs must be placed at the curb before Nov. 23 to be collected.  Crews will only make one pass through a neighborhood to collect debris, so it must be at the curb when they arrive.  Crews will only pick up tree debris located at the curb.
