Harford County will not be charging fees on permits required for homeowners to repair damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, County Executive David R. Craig announced Thursday.

If a property owner pays a permitting fee in order to repair Sandy-related damage, the county will provide a refund, according to a statement from Craig's office.

The fee waiver and potential for refund has been authorized from today until December 1, the statement said.
