Help Rahway Residents Rebuild! Waive Permit Fees for Ida Flood Damage Repairs.

flooding_in_rahway.jpegDear Mayor Giacobbe and the Rahway City Council,

As you know, many of your constituents and neighbors suffered major flood damage due to Tropical Storm Ida and the sewer backups that occurred all throughout Rahway. We are shelling out thousands and thousands of dollars to repair and rebuild our homes. 

We request that you please waive permit fees for work that homeowners need done in the wake of this disaster. For instance, replacing furnaces and hot water heaters, as well as more major work. This is something many cities have done in similar situations.

It's a relatively small amount of money compared to the huge costs Rahway residents have incurred, but any savings would help at this time. This act would be a great show of solidarity — and hugely appreciated. Thank you for your consideration. #RahwayStrong
