Gadsden County Continues to Waive Permit Fees
Gadsden County has extended the deadline for waived permit fees. This effort is to ensure that citizens can rebuild and recover following damages caused by Hurricane Michael.
Homeowners and licensed contractors may take advantage of this service for storm-related related damages and repairs like electrical and roof damage and for the demolition of uninhabitable lawful structures. Permit fees for all other work still applies.
Since Hurricane Michael, Gadsden County continues to make significant progress and has collected over 1 million cubic yards of vegetative storm debris totaling $23 million in debris removal costs. Efforts continue with a daily average of 283 loads of collected debris. 247 local hires have been made and monitoring costs are 20% below the industry standard.
Debris removal continues in each county district simultaneously. 359 trucks are working daily and making multiple passes to ensure all debris is picked up.
