LOMBARD, Illinois-- In a continued effort to provide relief to residents who have suffered storm damage, the Village of Lombard's Building Division will issue Express Permits for all construction permits related to restoration of flood damaged losses and furthermore, is temporarily allowing cargo containers on residential properties for storm clean-up activities.

To assist in storm recovery, an Express Permit process has been established. Express Permits is a procedure where permits are typically issued in under 15 minutes, as long as the contractor requesting the permits is registered and provides basic information about the work they are to perform. The permit application will be reviewed and issued on the spot. Express Permits are issued for replacing wet/damaged electric panels, water heaters and furnaces. Replacing drywall, flooring, doors and other finish materials does not require permits.

In addition, the Village is temporarily suspending its limitations on the use of cargo containers or pods on residential properties, provided that the container is associated with storm clean-up.

Village President-Elect Keith Giagnorio heralded the Express Permits program and the authorization to temporarily allow cargo containers as an immediate means that the Village could assist Lombard residents. "We need to help Lombard residents get back into their homes. The Village will look to develop innovative opportunities to assist our residents in these difficult times," said Giagnorio.
