Citizens’ Service Bureau

The Citizens’ Service Bureau (CSB) is the City of St. Louis’s clearinghouse for day-to-day city service issues. Call CSB for issues with trash, graffiti, streets and alleys, property code violations, and more.

You can call CSB at (314) 622-4800, file a report online, or send a request via Twitter. The vast majority of issues with city services can be handled by CSB, and when they can’t help you directly they will help you find the right department to ask. When in doubt, start with the Citizens’ Service Bureau.

For more information on the CSB, view the DutchtownSTL.org Guide to the Citizens’ Service Bureau.

Neighborhood Improvement Specialist

The Neighborhood Improvement Specialist serves as a liaison between residents and city services when a more intensive process is required. Neighborhood Improvement Specialists (also known as NISs, NSOs, or Neighborhood Stabilization Officers) work with the Problem Properties Unit of the St. Louis Police Department to abate ongoing nuisances, communicate with elected officials, and travel their assigned wards proactively pursuing problems.

The 25th Ward Neighborhood Improvement Specialist is Christian Saller. He can be reached at (314) 657-1375 or sallerc@stlouis-mo.gov.

Make sure to read DutchtownSTL.org‘s in-depth article about the role of Neighborhood Improvement Specialist.
