On the advice of staff, the City Council approved a resolution extending Longmont’s permit fee waiver program for flood-related repairs through September 2014. Building department staff told the City Council that homeowners in flood-affected neighborhoods requested the extension. Some waited for spring runoff to begin/end before reconstructing their basements, and therefore were not in a position to rebuild before the fee waiver program ended in December.
The resolution also decrees that permit fees paid for flood-related improvements within the affected areas between the expiration of the last extension (December 31) and June 10th will be refunded. The repairs do not have to be completed by September 30th but the permits for the repairs must be taken out prior to September 30.
