After Hermine, County and City Waive Permit Fees to Rebuild


To help the community rebuild after Hurricane Hermine, Leon County and the City of Tallahassee will waive growth management and building permit fees for storm-related repairs. Fees will also be waived retroactively for completed projects. Permit fees to remove storm-damaged trees will also be waived.

To be eligible for the waiver, the person performing the work must be the homeowner or a licensed contractor.

As a reminder, when using a contractor, you should always make sure that a contractor is licensed by the State of Florida. The licensing process protects property owners from incompetent, dishonest, or predatory workers.

A list of licensed contractors can be found at or by calling the Florida Department of Business and Professional Regulation at (850) 487-1395.

Starting Tuesday, Sept. 6, those interested in the waiver should contact either City of Tallahassee Growth Management at (850) 891-7001 /, or Leon County Development Support and Environmental Management at (850) 606-1300 / .
