How Citizens Can Help

Code Compliance Specialists work routinely with residents of the City and respond to requests for service. They make sure that all requests are tracked and investigated individually, and they work to ensure that violations are corrected promptly. But they need your help to keep Port St. Lucie a beautiful and enjoyable place to live and work. Requests for service can be made online, by telephone or by letter.

Please note: That email and written information is considered public record and subject to public record requests. Requests for service, however, can be made anonymously.
