  • 1129 Groveland Ave Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County
    I would like a response to my question about who is responsible for cleaning drains under driveways n county easement. As seen in pictures the drain under 1133 Groveland Ave, Venice is clogged and does not allow water to flow freely to the main storm day on east side of that property. The water between the mailboxes is about two feet deep in the ditch and as seen not much water is getting through to the main storm drain. Mine at 1112 Groveland is somewhat clogged as well. Can't seem to log in so please email me at
  • Stormwater Issue Acknowledged
    1129 Groveland Ave Venice, Florida - Sarasota County
    How does a homeowner get drain pipes under their driveway on county property cleaned out? As seen in pictures there is an issue. the one at 1133 Groveland is basically half full of dirt which does not allow runoff to reach large county storm drain at east side of that property as shown by little water getting to storm drain. The one under mine is somewhat blocked as well.

  • 595 Denburn Court Sarasota, Florida - Englewood
    We have an issue with the storm water pipe in the easement at 595 Denburn court Englewood fl. The pipe is allowing water to flow under it and is washing out the soil and seawall. We had contractors out to give pricing but non of them will touch it because its a county storm water pipe. My Neighbor on the other side of the easement said that the county was going to fix and that they had a work order #. they have left for the season so I did not get the #. Can you look into this as it is becoming a dangerous condition. Please contact me

  • 2113 Forked Creek Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County

  • Corner Of Center Rd. And Venice East Blvd Sarasota, Florida - Plantation
    The signal light is much too long. The light cycle for the left turn lane takes approximately 2.5 minutes to execute. This makes 10 to 12 vehicles to que up, attempting to take the left. This condition leaves vehicles building up in the middle travel lane. I have seen cars taking a right there, and a short way down the street, making a "u-turn" to beat the light cycle. Other drivers are running the red light to avoid a long light cycle.
    I understand a survey was done and the light was reprogrammed however, the consequences of a long light cycle taking the left turn, may not have been fully understood. I have waited at this light, with zero traffic, heading either East or West many mornings. I travel this route several times a day as part of my job and as a local resident.
    Please have an engineer evaluate the situation, any weekday morning when the traffic is at it's heaviest.
    This is my second request for an evaluation. No one responded on my first request.

  • 9045 Tamiami Trl S Venice, Florida - Sarasota County
    The timing on the light is giving priority to a single car leaving West Villages Pkwy and entering N River Rd. With heavy traffic heading South on River Rd. during 5-6pm rush hour, the light immediately triggers each time one car approaches. This allows only about 4 cars on River Rd to move through the light and causing line of stopped and crawling traffic back to Center Ave.
