Report potholes, storm drains, directly to the county

Have a pothole to report? A traffic light not working? Storm drains not draining?

Sarasota County has new ways to get in touch with the county to report problems and see follow-up action:



Sarasota County has launched two new digital tools that will provide citizens with additional ways to engage with their government.

First, the county has partnered with SeeClickFix on a new platform that will allow the public to report quality-of-life issues and request county services.
With the free SeeClickFix mobile app and web tools, Sarasota County citizens will now be able to provide county staff with pictures, videos, specific descriptions and a real-time location with their reports or requests. Citizens can report non-emergency issues, from traffic hazards like potholes to inoperable traffic signals, as well as view and comment on problems submitted by their neighbors. They can even create their own "watch areas" to receive notifications about all the issues reported in their community, enabling them to follow the progress of all service requests, not just the ones they report.

Contact the Call Center

Besides the phone (941 861-5000), you can now email or request service by filling out a form at the link.

Apparently there's a way to follow the County's response time to a service request, using See Click Fix.
