Green Brook’s Construction Department will waive any construction and tree removal permit and inspection fees for superstorm Sandy-related storm damage to one-and two-family homes in Green Brook.
The Township Committee approved the move at its Nov. 19 meeting.
Repairs and construction and tree removal that are needed as a result of superstorm Sandy still will require a permit and inspection, but related fees will be waived for homeowners, according to a statement released by Administrator/Municipal Clerk Kelly Cupit.
Since Nov. 27, six residents have benefited from the policy, saving approximately $3,000 to local homeowners, the statement said.
The Building Department reminds residents to only use New Jersey-licensed contractors and that permits need to be applied for prior to work commencing.
