Neighborhood Accountability

Codes Compliance is just one of several agencies that provide code enforcement services. Before making a report, consult the Who to Call list to reach the right agency. 

Make a Report

For all reports, provide an address and description of the concern. If there is no address, provide a location description such as abandoned car on vacant lot, one lot east of the house at 1485 66th Terr.

REPORT Online 

Report City code violations online through SeeClickFix St. Pete. This online service allows residents to report violations 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The report is forwarded electronically to a Codes Technician who opens a case in the City’s tracking database. 

Please note that when the status of an online complaint is marked as closed, if a property address was provided and the complaint is within the jurisdiction of the department, a codes case number is provided in the response. Use the codes case number to search the codes database for case progress. Case progress can also be obtained by calling the Codes Department at 727-893-7373.

Registering Complaints Anonymously Under State Law

In most cases residents may report a code violation anonymously. Any personal information that is provided becomes part of the public record, which any other citizen has the right to review. Personal information is only required from a tenant or renter requesting an inspection of the inside of a rented home or apartment unit. In that case, the name and telephone number of the tenant requesting the inspection will become part of the public record.

Any written or email material received or generated by the City Staff or Council members becomes public record and state law requires the record be made available for inspection by any citizen who requests it. This means it is impossible to provide anonymity to anyone who writes to the City via email or letter containing any personal information.
