[ARCHIVED] Hurricane Irma Damage Repairs

For emergency repairs related to Hurricane Irma, contractors and businesses must appear at the City’s Planning/Building permit counter, 22 S. Beach Street, to provide their license to prove they are eligible to do the work intended as well as to receive a “no fee permit.”

The permit fees will be waived for hurricane damage repairs only; however, the contractor and businesses must have their license and the “no fee permit” to do the work.


“No fee permits” for hurricane damage related work will be waived for 60 days from Friday, September 8, 2017, through Tuesday, November 7, 2017.  (City Ordinance 2017-26.)  The public is cautioned to hire Florida licensed contractors only and to be wary of door-to-door solicitors asking for large deposits or who promise to speed up the permit process.

The Neighborhood Improvement Division (NID) will expedite tree permits and waive any permit fees for the removal of trees threatening the life, safety or welfare of City residents and businesses. The removal of trees must be related to damages resulting from Hurricane Irma.
