From the reading of the TOB you do not need a permit to replace defective sheetrock.It specifically states it as long as you are not altering,demolition or removing the wall or any of its contents{plumbing,electrical,I think it is outright fraud that the village is demanding these illegal fees.Now when you pass village hall and they see sheetrock in your vehicle you will have a parade of code enforcers trailing you.If this regulation came from Tim he should be immediately terminated.
Insulation? Waterlogged wiring and electrical outlets, yeah we know... I only need one shehet of drywall. You all know a flood damaged house has extensive damage and requires an inspection and a permit. Kepp bashing the village for doing the right thing.

<quoted text>NO ONE needs a permit to replace drywall!ITS NOT IN THEIR CODE! This is a way for the village to nickel and dime the people who are most effected by the storm and try to run them out of town. Remember..they are trying to steal the waterfront from the MBPOA and anyone else that is in their way for developing.
FACT:
Village is charging a fee to place a temporary trail on property so people can live near their home.
Village is charging a fee to same people to place a PODS storage container on property.
Now village is charging a fee to instal drywall! While all other towns and villages are wavering them, MBV saw a way to make a few grand at our expense.
Nickels and dimes. Just like Smart people get the facts said would happen. Why, because in Tim Brojers OWN WORDS = "65% of businesses in MB are empty". So the homeowner gets nickel and dimed to afford the money to pay Garys family off in NO BID CONTRACTS!
But none of that matters. The real issues of this election is how old is the pic that Carol ran in the paper.
Your required to get a permit all over Long island to make these repairs. Sheet rock ?? If your replacing sheetrock your replacing plumbing and electric. A friend of mine is an electrician and he showed me paperwork NYS put out that all wiring exposed to salt water or fresh water MUST be replaced...

I do not feel anyone is being nickled and dimed. I know you can also buy a circuit breaker for under $5 but that doesn't mean you don't need a lic electrician to insure it is the correct amperage, there are no shorts, and whether a GFCI is necessary. The cost of the sheet rock is immaterial. Brookhaven town has this law for the same reason.
if this is such a great law, then why have only three people applied for permits in the last 3 years? maybe is't because it is a stupid law. any, anyway, i know how to change a circuit breaker in my home too. this is too much. it is invasive and dumb.

guess what? not everyone who replaces a piece of sheetrock has flood damage. sometimes, the sheetrock gets damaged by PEOPLE. or FURNITURE or PETS. i will replace all the damn sheetrock in my house (oh, i forgot, I already did that when i moved in) if i want to. i will not go and pay the village for the priviledge.

are you nuts? you think everyone who replaces sheetrock replaces electrical and plumbling? that's dumb. sheetrock gets holes, it gets old, it gets dents. sometimes, people just want to cover over bad wall texturing jobs. not all sheetrock is replaced because of a flood.

Nys building code allows a home owner to remove and replace Sheetrock without a permit if there is a risk of unsanitary conditions existing due to floods. Go read the law. One village employee called this a " loophole". Since when is following the law a "loophole"? Oh well welcome to Mastic Beach Village.

Great, f the village...you got soggy Sheetrock, pull it down and replace it. Who cares if the insulation and the wiring got salt water infiltrated. It will dry out. You don't need to worry about electrical shorts or mold. Do whatever you want. I am wrong. I know nothing.

The point is, if Im replacing sheetrock AND insulation, why do I need a permit? Why should the village charge me an extra 125 dollars? Nickel and dimes, thats why. Victor has to get paid somehow.

Brady you are the only one talking about electric. Everyone else is talking about Sheetrock and insulation. FEMA told people to remove Sheetrock and insulation immediately because to leave it would cause a health hazard. State code reflects that concern. Wet wiring is another issue

He knows. The village needs to nickel and dime the residents to afford Bradys and Zanyes pay checks, nothing else. They could inspect the homes once they are complete, they dont need to charge us $125 to do it if they are so concerned with our well being. NO other town or village is charging the people who were affected by Sandy, just ours. Nickels and dimes! Thats how this village will be run. So, still believe taxes aren't going up with all of Garys spending? Because the Village treasurer doesn't!

If your sheetrock was damaged by flooding, that means that the water height was above your flooring. Any wiring below your flooring (crawl space, basement) was saturated in salt water and needs to be replaced. All flooring and sub-flooring was soaked in salt water and likely oil/fecal matter and in most cases will need to be replaced. Many older homes have deteriorated foundations and wooden beams and studs that may have been damaged beyond repair from the flooding and even wave action. Mold is a tremendous concern and in many instances mold remediation is needed.

It's ridiculous to be making this argument about whether you need a permit to replace sheetrock. Of course you don't need a permit to replace a couple of sheets, but when your talking about removing 4 feet of insulation and sheetrock in your entire home, you obviously need a permit. Inspections are for the safety of residents and anyone who may purchase a home in the future. The village is not making money on the inspections. The fee pays for the time spent on the actual inspections and associated paperwork.

That is why an inspection is needed.

Nobody is talking about fixing a hole in a panel caused by you coming home drunk and throwing something at the wall. They are not talking about repairs....the issue is re-construction.

Based on this thinking, it would be stupid for anyone to buy or rent a house in MBV south of Elm because the house is likely a mold, fecal bacteria, oil sludge death trap waiting to cause all kinds of havoc on its unfortunate occupants.

Fine, but why ask those poor people who already lost most of everything to give the village another 125 for that permit? They already paid money for the trailer permits, the POD permits and now they need another 125 dollars? Does it really take Tim B that long to inspect a house and give it a pass/fail? The village is nickeling and diming us because they are broke and need money. Every other town and village on LI are waving the fees but not us! Fine, get a permit, take away the fee if they really want to help the "people" and prove to us that its to take away their homes!

the homes will be WORTHLESS if they can't prove all work was done to code and inspected and approved. Anyone buying or renting should do due diligence before buying moldy, salt water flooded, oil spilled fecal bacteria houses whose owner said I don't need no stinking permit.

FINE! DO that! WHY does the village need to charge an extra 125 dollars???? You keep refusing to answer that question. But I know, you baffle with bullsh!t. Thats the visions way. Let them inspect, make them get a permit.

Really, every other town and village is waiving their fees? Town of Brookhaven is waiving fees on residents dumping Sandy debris, which is nice. But, VMB picked it all up for free.

Worthless houses without proof of code compliance.
