[ARCHIVED] rides for those who lost cars...volunteers wanted. Waiving building permit fees

Many residents are still suffering due to the damages caused by the storm.
FEMA will continue to be at library.
Some residents may need help with transportation since they lost cars
Think town should waive building permit fees

NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS - someone looking for ride to shopping since she lost her car...

Some residents of 100 E Hartsdale Ave and 80 E Hartsdale Ave lost their cars during the recent storm. So did other residents around town (including residents of 100, 99 Manhattan Ave and 33 Oak).   I received this e mail from a resident of E Hartsdale Ave looking for a ride to take her grocery shopping. If anyone would like to volunteer please e mail me at pfeiner@greenburghny.com  with your info so I can share with the resident. If other residents contact me I will try to connect volunteers with residents who ask for this service. The town accepts no responsibility for the referrals.


RESIDENT SEEKING HELP

"Good morning!  As per our phone conversation this morning, I am interested in obtaining a free ride to grocery store (ShopRite, etc…).  As my car was totaled from the flood on 9/1/2021, I am without access to stores.  I cannot get a car now as I am dealing with caring for mom who is at home on hospice.

I wonder if there are any volunteers to take me shopping.."


SOME COMMUNITIES WAIVING OR SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCING BUILDING PERMIT FEES FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO GET THEIR HOME RESTORED TO THE WAY IT ONCE WAS
  Some villages/towns are eliminating or significantly reducing building permit fees for those who suffered property damages due to the storm and need to get their house back to its pre storm condition. I will bring this up at the Town Board work session tomorrow. Members of the Town Board and I feel horrible that so many residents lost tens of thousands of dollars (some six figures) in property losses. Waiving building permit fees is a gesture that makes sense.


an update. The turnout at the FEMA mobile financial assistance was great. FEMA decided to continue their outreach at the Greenburgh library. They will be at tHE Greenburgh library  Tuesday and Wednesday  from 10 AM to 6 PM.  Mon-Wed 10 AM - 6 PM; Sunday 9 AM - 5 PM; 
Mon & Tues October 4th & 5th 10 AM - 6 PM

Please share your experiences dealing with FEMA. Will be providing our congressional delegation with a summary of experiences people are having getting the help they need. My e mail is pfeiner@greenburghny.com. Can always be reached at 438 1343.
