SH LUZ REPORT 2023 October


Check out this website  You can ask questions of most every department in the city and if you don’t know who to ask, use the link at the bottom to send a general question.


Maybe you are driving, or walking and see a problem, like a yard full of junk, or a street sign that is broken, or remodeling without a permit.  The app SLCMOBILE can be put on your phone.  When you see an issue, take a photo or two, and send a comment and your name along with the photo to the city using the app. The city  can pinpoint the issue from the gps on the photo, and forward the problem on to the proper department to fix the issue. If you get a response in a bit that says “completed” that means they have forwarded it on to the right person, that does not mean the issue is cleared up. Be sure to keep tabs and bug the city if it doesn’t get corrected.
