Businesses looking to rebound from Superstorm Sandy will have a little less hassle rebuilding.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed an executive order Thursday that eliminated various construction fees for stores that were in the hardest hit areas of the Oct. 29 storm.

Businesses will still have to fill out the necessary paperwork for things such as construction permits, plumbing, and business licenses, and apply for the fee waiver. Log on to nyc.gov for more information.
