Service Requests

Submitting a service request online through CSR is the most effective way to report a code violation and stay up to date on progress. Service Requests should contain detailed information pertaining to the type and location of the violation on a property. If there are multiple Service Requests for a property, please complete a Service Request for each Violation as specific violations follow different action timelines (see Processes below). 

Click Service Request to report a violation. 

To stay updated informed on the status of a Service Request, you can do so by several different methods.

Email

  • An automated email will be generated and sent to the email provided during the completion of a Service Request for each status change. An email must be provided to receive updates.

Search by Address 

  • You are able to search the status of a code violation on the CSR Homepage by using property address. A Property Address search provides a general overview of violations status. Searching by reference number provides the highest level detail of violation status.

Every Service Request is given a unique reference number (HR19XXXXXX) which can be used to search the status of that violations.
