On August 1, 2016, Legislator Denise Ford and all members of the Nassau County Legislature voted unanimously to approve a local law to extend economic hardship relief to the victims of Superstorm Sandy by providing a waiver of county fees associated with the continued rebuilding effort.

“Superstorm Sandy victims are still rebuilding their homes, and their lives, 4 years after the storm,” said Legislator Ford. “Nassau County has not forgotten you, and we will continue to advocate for all Sandy victims.”

Pursuant to the law, the Department of Public Works, the Department of Health, and the County Clerk’s Office will waive fees for permits or services which are required for repairs or new construction in connection with the effects of Superstorm Sandy. This law was originally enacted in 2013, and is now being amended to lengthen the fee-waiver period to December 31, 2017, to assist Sandy victims that are still renovating their homes.

Residents seeking assistance must provide a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) identification or case number and a notarized statement that the claimed waiver is in connection with the rebuilding efforts necessitated by Hurricane Sandy. Applicants shall be entitled to a refund for all fees that were remitted for permits or services necessary for repairs or construction in connection with the effects of Superstorm Sandy. Refunds shall be obtained by sending, via certified or registered mail, evidence of payment and a showing of good cause to the department head responsible for the permit or service.
