In an effort to expedite repairs required as a result of damage caused by Hurricane Irma, the Building Division will implement the following changes to its permitting policies and procedures over the next 90 calendar day period. This 90 day grace period will assist the residents and commercial businesses of the City in restoring their property and returning to normal operations as quickly as possible.
These repair permits will receive prioritized review and as per code, the work may be started with the permit application being submitted within 48 hours.
Repairs to damaged electrical service of a structure including meter troughs, risers and masts, weatherheads and associated electrical equipment must be done by a qualified electrician. The work can be done and an after the fact permit obtained by the electrical contractor.
To help expedite the permit review process, please submit pictures of the damage along with your permit application to qualify for the waiver of the permit fees.
