Time running out to qualify for amnesty

The Village of Garden City’s amnesty period for legalizing home improvements that were performed without permits will be expiring on July 30th. After that date, homeowners will be charged a legalization fee of three times the regular permit fee in order to legalize work previously done.

In February 2022, the Board of Trustees authorized a an amnesty period to allow homeowners to apply to legalize work without paying the extra fee.

According to the Village, residents can start the permit paperwork at the Village Building Department by July 30th and then gather necessary documents needed in order to qualify for the amnesty.
