What can I search for?

Boca eHub allows customers to search for and view information related to permits, plans, inspections, code cases and business tax receipts. 

Searching Public Records in Boca eHub

Public records can be searched and viewed without registering for a Boca eHub account simply by typing an address, application number, case number, inspection number or any other keyword into the search bar and then hitting the “Enter” or “Return” key on your keyboard or clicking “Search” next to the search bar. The system will display search results right below with the ability for the user to further access more detailed information by selecting a record from the search results by clicking on an inspection, permit, plan, code case, or business tax receipt number. 

Advanced Search

Choosing any of the search option types (except for ALL) and clicking the “Advanced” button, will bring up additional fields to further narrow your search results. The available advance search criteria will vary depending on the option you selected in the “Search” drop-down, i.e. depending on whether you are searching for permits, plans, inspections, code cases or business tax receipts.

Not all fields in the advanced search need to be utilized, and any combination can be used. You can click “Reset” to clear the entered search criteria and “Advanced” to hide the advanced search criteria.  

Exporting Search Results

The system also allows you to export an Excel file of your search results. As soon as any search results are displayed after performing a search, an “Export” button will appear on the right next to the search bar.  Once you click on the “Export” button, you will see a pop-up box where you can enter a file name and select to either “Export first 1000 Results (default)” or “Export Current View”. Then click “Ok” to start exporting the search results data.

Searching in Boca eHub as a Registered User

The only difference in searching the Boca eHub system as a registered user is that you will be able to view more details about any cases in the system that you are a contact for, including applications that you submitted with your account. As a registered user, if any actions are available on a case only the applicant will see all available actions and will have action buttons to click on to perform actions. In addition, certain review information and attachments related to a case are only visible to the applicant. The contacts section in a case record will let a user know that they are not an authorized contact if they are not an assigned contact on a particular case.

Before Boca eHub

Users will have access to view active records that were converted at the time of implementation of the new software. Any records that were not active at the time of implementation can be requested via the City’s online Public Records Request form.
