    5349 Howard Creek Rd Sarasota, FL, 34241, USA - Sarasota County
    This green gate and the fence to the right of it was put up last week and blocks a county drainage easement and ditch. This man has does this because he does not want walkers, bike riders, or horse riders going by his house. He runs an illegal carpentry/cabinet making business out of his garage and doesn't want to get reported again. He's already been told to shut it down before. The county has been called for a second gate that illegally blocks the drainage easement trail behind his house, but has been threatened by this bully, so they don't do anything. This is unacceptable. This easement cannot have a closed gate and I am sick of this man being able to get away with bending the rules to suit himself. We must all abide by the law, he is not special and does not get a hall pass to do what he wants.

    4847 Commonwealth Dr Siesta Key, FL, 34242, USA - Siesta Key
    This house at 4847 Commonwealth Drive, Siesta Key recently sold and is now being advertised as a rental with multiple rentals a month. That is not allowed as the zoning in this area is one rental per month. House may also have had some non permitted work as it is advertised as a f bedroom when it sold as a 4 bedroom. I have been told they are utilizing a non compliant area downstairs as a bedroom. Not against rentals, just against breaking the rules and all the noise.

    Dan Smith has definitely lied to the public and he's also publicly recorded false information as the truth. Additionally, Dan and at least (10) other Sarasota County Employees are involved with Dan's actions. Undeniably, allowing non-compliance to remain and worse. Dan Smith, Matt Osterhoudt, Mark Loveridge, Michele Norton, Donna Thompson, Sandra LeGay, Charles Marchione, Bill Motherway, Bonnie Sylvestri and Jonathan Lewis. All of these County Employees have completely disregarded Sarasota County's code sections that are undeniably still in violation. After being thoroughly informed, repeatedly...

    701 Gantt Ave Sarasota, FL, 34232, USA - Fruitville

    This Code Enforcement Complaint has not been properly investigated and publicly recorded, nor have any County employees associated ever provided COMPLAINT SITE PHOTOS of this Gantt av. County road. That's now paved with reinforced concrete, more than 70 lineal feet of County roadway x 30 ft. wide.
    This County road prior this unpermitted concrete. Was ONLY an asphalt paved County road. A citizen/eyewitness photoed this unpermitted work and the Planning and Develop. Director has disregarded the testimony and photos from the witness. Then he lied that a CLASS H driveway apron existed prior to the concrete pour.
    Public Records has provided that in fact the FAKE/COUNTERFEIT Apron permit does not have the civil drawings or the other prior to any R.O.W. work commencing required procedures completed and submitted with that planted/FAKE Driveway Apron Permit. Of which, has absolutely no relevance towards the required to be applied for and reviewed for the CLASS D R.O.W. Roadway Permit required for the same concrete poured on both lanes of County Rd., Gantt av.. At the same pour for/ with the Driveway Apron. In the middle of the night hours...

    We have some serious corruption and crime occurring. When several associated County employees are violating F.S. 838.022, MISUSE OF PUBLIC OFFICE.
    When again, just days ago, 01-05-2022. LDS/Land and Development Services has altered my complaint description on/from the originally phoned in Feb.16, 2021 CE Complaint # 21 109230 00 11.
    And they've now addressed/entered into this CE complaint's Status as: UNFOUNDED.
    To make matters worse. I have repeatedly informed the County Administrator and he's ignoring this citizen/eyewitness testimony and the Public Records that support the associated County employees dirty work.

    commercial vehicles, one of three that may be there. They have been violating this everyday since they moved in a few months ago. Your codes people have been over there numerous times and they still park Dailey. This truck is there right now. The supervisors at the codes dept find the intent of the law "sketchy ", "hard to understand" and (ha ha) "must be written by lawyers" . The cancer of ignorance in the codes dept starts at the top, they must be removed and people that understand that other people want to live, at least, to the standard of the law. I have had 22 police officers and 3 county codes people here and the commercial vehicles are still here Dailey. Please remove ALL commercial vehicles, trailers, unregistered cars and boats in the middle of lawns. Oh yeah! There are some lawns that need to be mowed too. (lawns they issue paperwork for and say must be done is so many days, not junk cars?) Please clean up Sarasota Springs and make it a respectable place to live again.

    6700-6898 Avenue A Sarasota, FL, 34231, USA - Sarasota County

    This trailer park is on Avenue A. A main cut thru off of Hwy 41 to Siesta Key Beach. Also, located across from Tiny houses that house tourists who travel to see our beautiful beaches from all over the world.

    The sight they have to see directly across the street from their vacation stay should not be. It does not leave a good impression and has an unkept look like you would see in a different part of town. Rats running around, many feral cats that run across the busy street and don't make it.

    One trailer is vacant and the owner passed away many years ago. So people break in and squat. The screens are falling off, break ins to the door and debris every where. In addition, the next door trailer leaves out all their garbage cans for the week sprawled all over the curb and garbage sits there all week, every week because the garbage men do not take it if not in cans. Something needs to be done.

    If I could I would check off all the choices for violation, but this site only allows me to check off one Issue!!

Further, homeowner continues to park a Commercial Truck in a residential neighborhood against County Ordinance. Please help. Thank you.
