You can't find it? Or you can't get it to work?
The shutoff should be where the water enters the house.
However, I have seen master shutoff's that were buried in the yard. That required digging along the line to find the shutoff box. That was in AZ and was a crazy town...I can't imagine any other town would replicate that.
