Supervisor Kate Murray and the Town of Hempstead extended fee waivers through Sept. 30 for town building department permits for Sandy-related reconstruction and repair and for the replacement of marriage licenses and other documents furnished by the Office of the Town Clerk.
“The Town of Hempstead is committed to helping neighbors rebuild ... in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy,” Murray said.
Without the extension, the fee waivers would expire June 30.
Specifically, the waivers will be for permits for “in-kind” reconstruction and replacement of homes in unincorporated areas of the town damaged by superstorm Sandy.
Under the extension, residents who lost important documents — such as birth certificates and passports — during superstorm Sandy would not have to pay the town fees for replacement copies. — SID CASSESE
