Storm Damaged Property Inspection Requests

NOTICE TO STORM-DAMAGED PROPERTY OWNERS:

The August 13, 2018, weather event produced numerous issues, including property damage to some homes in Brick Township. While many will have the necessary repairs completed quickly, others may not. Those homes which remain damaged will need to be inspected by our office before December 31, 2018, to determine if a temporary adjustment to the 2019 tax assessment is appropriate.

Naturally we are hopeful that you are able to remediate the damage quickly; however, if you are not, we ask you to please complete the form available on the Brick Township website to schedule an inspection of any unrepaired damage before December 31, 2018. These storm inspections will be taking place during October, November and December.

Note that this Tax Assessment inspection is IN ADDITION to any safety or building permit inspections conducted by various other township departments. Should you have any questions, our office number is 732-262-1069. Please indicate that you are calling regarding a STORM DAMAGE INSPECTION.
