As residents struggle to recover after Sunday's tornado outbreak, the City of Kokomo will waive certain permit fees through December 20th related to cleanup and reconstruction.

The fees include, but are not limited to dumpster permits, demolition permits, building permits, and electrical permits for commercial and residential structures.

In order to obtain a permit, residents are still required to submit the appropriate paperwork to the Permit Office related to their specific recovery needs.

"The residents of Kokomo and city employees have shown remarkable resilience in our community, and I want to thank everyone for their efforts," said Mayor Greg Goodnight. "We will continue working tirelessly to recover from this storm and rebuild our community."

All permits needed for new construction and recovery are handled through the Permit Office located on the first floor of City Hall. Questions related to obtaining building permits can be directed to Angie Lowe at 765-456-7362.
