Now, Venice’s 22,000+ citizens will be able to easily report quality-of-life issues (such as potholes, damaged sidewalks, roadside junk or tall grass) directly to City Hall with the right information to get the issues fixed.

“We’re thrilled to be able to provide this service to our citizens. SeeClickFix will streamline the process of reporting issues and get them assigned to the correct city departments more expediently and efficiently.”
-City of Venice Public Information Officer Lorraine Anderson

SeeClickFix’s technology was built for overlapping jurisdictions, so citizens can report issues to the city and county on the same app. Blog Post Venice Previously, emails, phone calls and walk-ins came into the city to at least a half-dozen people throughout City Hall. Issues were being catalogued and assigned via email, sometimes to the wrong department or even the wrong jurisdiction (like the city when the issue is really in unincorporated Sarasota County). Venice needed a better way of assigning citizens’ concerns and complaints that was a more true single point-of-contact.
