This week Governor Rick Scott issued Executive Order 17-330, which extends the state of emergency declared in Executive Order 17-235 and 17-287 for another 60 days.
Therefore, in Monroe County, all building permits active on Sept. 4, 2017 will receive a total of 180 days extension (60 days each for Executive Orders 17-235, 287 and 330) related to Hurricane Irma. No action on behalf of the permit holder is required.
For those seeking a 6-month extension in addition to the now 180-day extension, a written request for this extension is required.
An updated “6-month extension request form” is located on the County website at http://www.monroecounty-fl.gov/DocumentCenter/View/12650.
For those permit holders that have already requested the six-month extension, these additional 60 days will be added to your extension without the need for you to contact County staff.
