In the IWorQ citizen request portal system, requests sent in through the citizen engagement request portal (including, but not limited to, permit applications) are now trackable from the customer side through the same request portal page that is used to submit a citizen request. The Citizen Request Portal link is posted on the Building Services website:
Citizen Request Portal
Click on the REQUEST PORTAL to submit your request.
Direct link: https://fortmyers.portal.iworq.net/portalhome/fortmyers
After clicking on the request portal link, you can view request progress by clicking on the “Find Your Request Here” icon:
Request status can be located in a number of different ways by choosing various options from the pull-down menu. Select your choice, enter your identifying information into the “Search” field, and click the “Search” button:
When results appear, click "View" on your request.
The request status will be shown on the next screen:
A status of “pending” means that the request has been received and is still in the incoming queue. It will be processed in the order received. When the request is processed, a notification of the change of status will be emailed to the email address provided by the permit applicant.
Once a complete permit application is received (all required documents and information is received in one permit application request with all documents properly completed), a permit number is created and the documents are forwarded for building code review and various other reviews as applicable for that project. A notification of the change of status is emailed to the email address provided by the permit applicant.
Once a permit is created and a permit number is issued, the permit status becomes trackable online through the IWorQ Permit Portal. Note that this is different than the Citizen Request Portal mentioned previously. This link is also posted at the Building Services page:
