Council votes on continuing to waive permitting fees associated with Hurricane Ida recovery

In its first meeting of the month, the St. Charles Parish Council unanimously voted to extend an emergency ordinance that was adopted in September that allows the Department of Planning and Zoning to waive local permit fees and various plan review and inspection fees for repairs and renovations required from damage sustained during Hurricane Ida.

The original emergency ordinance expired on Feb. 28. The extension implemented during the May 2 meeting will be retroactive from Feb. 28 and extend through Aug. 29. The ordinance was sponsored by District 3 councilwoman Mary Clulee.
