  • Unnamed Road Venice, Florida - Sarasota County
    Most of the street light are not working on Venice east heading towards Sarasota national community. the first half do work but the second half don't. this was recent construction and worked for a month or two but been out for a while now.
  • Traffic Light Issue Acknowledged
    Gocio Rd And Lockwood Ridge Rd Intersection Sarasota, Florida - North Sarasota
    Pease look into this light. The traffic light timing does not change to green for traffic coming off Gocio Rd for about 4 minutes. Now with school in session traffic is backing up to the four way stop in front of the school. Some vehicles have a 8 minute wait to turn, which is totally unnecessary with the limited amount of traffic on Lockwood Ridge Rd. Thank you!
  • 920 Casey Cove Dr Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County
    The stormdrain on the streetside in front of house at 920 Casey Cove Drive is filled with dirt and I would assume not working properly. You all were kind enough to clear it a couple years ago but it requires a cleanup again because it is not draining when it rains. Thank you in advance for your help!
  • Ne Corner Of Mcintosh Road/41 On Sidewalk Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County
    There's a two-inch nail (the pointy end) sticking up out of the concrete. It's at an angle, but if a bike rode over it or someone stepped on it, it would tear a tire or shoe.
  • 1518 Center Road Venice, Florida - Sarasota County
    There is a bush blocking the School/pedestrian crosswalk sign west bound on Center Road in front of the Venice Middle School.
    With school starting on Monday it could be a safety concern for students trying to cross before or after the crossing guards are there.
  • Permitting Acknowledged
    2146 Sylvan Lea Drive Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County
    MI Homes construction trucks and concrete mixers begin at 5am in the morning. The trucks and the work are very loud. Because our streets are narrow, they have to stop and back up to navigate our streets and the beeping is very loud. They often come multiple trucks at a time and they sit idle in the street in front of our house for long periods. The air brake release is loud. I have activity on my CCTV cameras starting at 5am and going all morning. I have emailed the construction supervisor but no response.
  • 405 Redwood Rd. Sarasota, Florida - Venice Gardens

  • Code Enforcement Acknowledged
    7125 Antigua Pl Sarasota, Florida - Gulf Gate Estates
    This house has been overgrown so long that the other day I was walking my dog and a RAT jump out! The HMO says they have complained to you and nothing still has been done. This is very unhealthy and dangerous to our neighborhood safety.
  • Pothole Archived
    3544 Austin St Sarasota, Florida - South Gate Ridge

    The potholes are popping up in the neighborhood again, so I did a drive around to give you an update.

    Austin St & Montevista Dr (2) 1ft and 2 ft diameter
    Austin St & Buchanan Pl (2) 1ft and 2ft
    4974 Buchanan Pl (1) 1ft
    Plantation Dr & Montevista Dr (1) 1ft
    Southland Dr & Beneva Ln (1) 1ft

    Montevista intersections and Beneva Ln intersections get a lot of traffic, so you might want to tend to those before they get too much larger.

    Thanks

  • 6760 Half Moon Drive Sarasota, Florida - Gulf Gate Estates
    Thank you for installing a new LED street light in front of my house. It is awesome. The only problem is it stays on 24 hours a day. Can someone come out and correct this? Many thanks.

  • 507 Hancock Ave Sarasota, Florida - Fruitville
    Seems any time of day I go outside I am dealing with mosquitoes. I cover myself in bug spray and they still find a place to bite. I am getting some in my house because they get in my hair or fly in when I open the door

  • Bee Ridge And Iona Roads Sarasota, Florida - Sarasota County

    The county has done a beautiful job improving the traffic flow on Bee Ridge Road with roundabouts.

    However, the condition of the landscaping at Bee Ridge and 1) Iona, B. R. Ext. and 2) Tora Place roundabouts is deplorable. It is an eyesore with unkept shrubs that are difficult to keep trimmed, yet are the centerpiece of these roundabouts.

    The exception is at the intersection of Bent tree and Laurel Oak which contain a minimum of messy shrubs, yet always look elegant and pleasing to the thousands of drivers viewing them every day.
