Officials from the Hempstead Town building department and the Federal Emergency Management Agency on Monday will attend a meeting on rebuilding for superstorm Sandy victims.

The meeting, scheduled for 7 p.m. at Seaford High School, also will include insurance attorneys, construction companies and advocates for residents who are rebuilding, said Nassau Legis. Dave Denenberg (D-Merrick), who is hosting the event.

The meeting will focus on rebuilding homes, elevating homes, Hempstead building permit requirements, insurance issues and FEMA assistance, Denenberg said in a statement.
