The motto of Sarasota County government is "Quality of Life". Our natural features, good planning, friendly people and diligent public servants contribute to this quality. During and after hurricane Irma, Sarasotan's cooperated with local officials to help speed recovery. The lift stations had generators in place and electric is being restored in a timely manner. Traffic lights at major intersections were working w/in 48 hrs, and we had groceries and gas stations open for business. We are truly fortunate to escape major storm damage and to  to live in Sarasota.
