Permitting Fees Waived

Permit fees to repair damages caused by Hurricane Irma have been temporarily waived in Orange County. Whether you are hiring a licensed contractor or doing the repairs yourself, you need to have a permit and have certified inspectors inspect the work.

Fence Repair

Orange County residents do not need a new zoning permit to repair fences damaged during Hurricane Irma. The previous permit is all that is needed. If you have a fence that needs to be repaired due to hurricane activity, you do not need a new zoning permit before repairing the damaged fence. You may repair or replace portions of the fence under the existing or previous permit.
