[ARCHIVED] STEVE RHOADS CALLS ON ELIMINATION OF DEADLINES FOR SUPER STORM SANDY VICTIMS

Nassau County Legislator Steve Rhoads joined Town of Hempstead Supervisor Anthony Santino, Councilman Anthony D’Esposito and dozens of residents in calling on New York State to abolish the New York Rising deadlines for people still not in their homes.


Until June 1st, 2018, Sandy Storm Victims have the option to raise their homes. However, residents were only given 18 days notice of an upcoming deadline to submit building permit applications or risk losing reimbursement money. 2,200 residents’ homes are at risk if they do not submit the necessary documentation.

“New York Rising's arbitrary deadlines do not take into account the realities faced by the very homeowners they are supposed to be helping and are making recovery more difficult, not easier. As local elected officials, we stand united with the communities we represent to demand with one voice that the Governor exercise his authority to eliminate the deadlines- eliminate the red tape- and direct New York Rising to fulfill its mission to all still struggling to recover and rebuild. It is time to deliver on the promises he made to these families. “
