Due to periodic flooding and sewer back charge that has occurred in some areas of the Village over the last few years, the Village is now waiving building permit fees for damage related to flooding as well as for the installation of flood control measures.
In order to obtain a waiver from the fees, a waiver form needs to be filled out with contract information and a complete description of the work and diagram.
The permit will still be issued and contractors are required to be licensed and bonded with the Village under normal regulations. The Village may conduct preliminary inspections prior to issuing flood repair related permits.
Permit and waiver request applications are available online and can also be picked up at the Village Hall. If you have questions, please contact the Community Development Department at (708)579-2320.
