An emergency permitting system for Marco Island has been established. The Marco Island Code of Ordinances developed an emergency permitting system in order to facilitate disaster recovery and reconstruction in a timely manner. So, when a Notice by the City Manager is posted, some repairs can be done without a requirement for an individual building permit for a period of 60 days.
When the notice is issued, the following policies become effective for that period: Emergency repairs to residential, commercial and industrial structures making it habitable, like temporary roof repairs with plywood or plastic sheeting. Even if it can’t make the structure habitable, this also extends to making these repairs in order to prevent continued damage to the building and exteriors too. Covering exterior wall openings with plywood or plastic sheeting will also be covered by this emergency permitting system. Plus, repairs to interior ceilings in order to drain flood waters or to make it habitable again is covered in this provision. If you need to perform temporary stabilization to prevent building or structure collapse, that is also covered.
Other Activities Covered By Emergency Permitting System
Other repairs are also covered by this system when a notice is issued. For example, of you need to replace outdoor air conditioning units during this 60 day period following a notice, you can do that without having to worry about individual permitting. You can also replace bathroom floors, cabinets and anything less than 25 percent of windows in single family homes. Also, if you need to repair a roof in a permanent way, you can repair less than 400 square feet of it without worrying about permitting. Plus, you can repair stairs to make them safe, and demolish screened pool enclosures if you need to.
Remember also, tile work, carpeting, painting and wallpapering doesn’t need a building permit.
