After Hermine, County and City Waive Permit Fees to Rebuild

09/06/2016

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 www.myfloridalicense.com/dbpr/ 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 / www.Talgov.com/growth, or Leon County Development Support and Environmental Management at (850) 606-1300 / www.LeonPermits.org .
