After Michael, Leon County to Waive Permit Fees to Rebuild
To help the community rebuild after Hurricane Michael, Leon County will waive building permit fees for storm-related repairs. Citizens and contractors may begin storm related repairs immediately and apply for the necessary permits afterwards and removal of storm-damaged trees.
Starting Tuesday, October 16, those interested in the waiver should contact Leon County Development Support and Environmental Management at (850) 606-1300 / www.LeonPermits.org .
To be eligible for the waiver, the person performing the work must be the homeowner or a licensed contractor.
As a reminder, you should always make sure that your contractor is licensed by the State of Florida. The licensing process protects property owners from incompetent or dishonest contractors.
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 once State offices reopen.
