Expedited Permit Procedures

Flooding in St. Pete Beach

Procedure to Expedite Eligible Permits Following Hurricane Idalia

NOTICE: All flood damaged materials may be removed without a permit. However, a permit must be obtained to replace the flood-damaged materials. 

The City will issue the following permits over-the-counter with a notarized application, a floorplan noting the damaged materials and photos of the damage:

   •    Roof Repair (less than 25%) and Re-roofs

   •    Equipment Replacement (due to flood damage)

   •    Fence Repair if it serves as a pool barrier

   •    Interior Flood Repairs (may include replacing insulation and affected    

        framing, drywall, trim, base cabinetry, and electrical wiring and devices*)


*NOTE: A licensed electrician must sign on to interior repair permits to ensure the temporary power is made safe. Failure to do so may result in a fire.


Technical review is only required if any of the following apply:


1.    The value of work is $25,000 or more (requires FEMA packet)
2.    A stop work order was issued prior to the storm
3.    There are other open building permits, regardless of the value of work

NOTE: When technical review is required, the permit will not be issued over the counter but will be expedited to prevent further delays.
