The Radnor Township Board of Commissioners unanimously approved a motion at their special meeting on Monday, August 20, 2018 to refund any permitting fees paid by Residents or Businesses directly impacted by the August 13 flooding, and to waive any future permitting fees for repairs needed as a result of the same August 13 flooding. Township Officials noted that residents / businesses will need to provide proof of the flooding damage via pictures and certified reports from contractors, similar to an insurance claim.
The August 20 motion serves as an immediate step to allow the refund / fee waiver program to begin. To better memorialize the program going forward, a Resolution will be considered at the Board of Commissioners’ regularly scheduled meeting on September 10, 2018.The Community Development Department stresses that the fee waiver does not mean that the permits and inspections are no longer required. All repairs that would otherwise need a permit and inspection still require the necessary paperwork to be filed with the Township. These permits are an important step towards the safety of the public to ensure that contractors are registered and that their work is code compliant.
