October 26, 2018 (Alpine) - The Alpine Fire Protection District (AFPD) Board of Directors approved waiving plan check fees and permits for all victims of the West Fire. At the October 16, 2018 meeting of the AFPD Board of Directors a resolution was passed with all Directors voting for approval. The resolution allows all victims rebuilding destroyed or damaged structures to do so without having to pay plan check fees and permits.
“The Board of Directors wanted to help those effected by the West Fire” said Alpine Fire Chief Bill Paskle. “The Board realizes that the right thing to do is help where we can. These victims of the fire are our neighbors and friends and the Board wanted to ensure the rebuilding would be as painless and smooth as we can make it.”
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors voted on July 25, 2018 to waive all county imposed fees for victims of the West Fire.
