NEWBURGH, Ind. (WEHT) – The Town of Newburgh announced building permits fees would be waived for residents who suffered damage in Saturday’s tornado. Permits will still need to be applied for before any work can start on a property. You can reach the Zoning Administrator, Tavi Wydicks, at 812-853-1720 extension 1 or email email@example.com.
Plus, Newburgh is working to deal with debris on a large scale. The town is asking for residents to follow conditions for tree limb removal. Tree limbs must not be over 3″ in diameter and bundled in lengths not to exceed four feet or over thirty pounds. Duct tape, rope, and anything else can be used to bundle the limbs. Tree limbs will be picked up by Advanced Disposal’s weekly pickup.
Yard waste can be taken to the county landfill, and Brewer Farms is taking branches and trees.
Amanda Mosiman, Ag and Natural Resource Extension Educator from Purdue Extension, is able to do damage assessment to trees and has also provided information on trees and storm damage. You can reach Amanda at Bailey1@purdue.edu or by calling 812-897-6100.
As a reminder, the Town of Newburgh has also closed all Town offices to the public. Essential business may be handled by calling 812-853-1720 or using the Town website at www.newburgh-in.com.
