PENDER COUNTY – With the ongoing response and recovery efforts to Hurricane Florence, Pender County Inspections and Permitting has been working with victims of Hurricane Florence to assure building and electrical safety to assist with recovery.
“Beginning Friday, Sept. 28, Pender County Inspections and Permitting will accept inspection requests for currently permitted projects,” said Scott Henry, Pender County Inspections and Permitting director.
A request has been made to State WebEOC for five building inspectors and five electrical inspectors to complete building evaluations of structures that sustained major and destroyed damage as documented through the Rapid Assessment process. The request, which was granted, will allow the inspectors to begin Monday, Oct. 1, through Friday, Oct. 5.
“With state forces assisting with building evaluations, our staff of four can focus on normal permitting and inspections duties to provide a service level expectation pre-storm,” said Henry.
