URGENT! DEBRIS MANAGEMENT – Updated 9/4
ATTENTION REGARDING DEBRIS MANAGEMENT:
If you have flooded and plan to start your recovery process, this information is EXTREMELY IMPORTANT!
The debris management is underway and pick-up will begin on Tuesday, September 5!
It is imperative that if you are already beginning to clean out and take debris from your home, you MUST separate your debris per the attached guidelines or it will NOT be picked up. Debris should be placed curbside, without blocking the roadway or storm drains. Any debris placed on your sidewalk toward your property will not be picked up.
If your property suffered damages during Hurricane Harvey (DR-4332), we ask that you please complete the following reports (City and County where your property is located):
- City of Katy: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/katyflooding
(THIS LINK IS FOR RESIDENTS OF THE CITY OF KATY ONLY – SEE MAP TO SEE IF YOU ARE WITHIN THE CITY LIMITS)
- The following County where your property is located:
Residents should also go to https://www.disasterassistance.gov/ for recovery information, National Flood Insurance claims and to apply for FEMA assistance. If a resident has private insurance, you can register at SBA.gov for recovery small interest loans.
ATTENTION REGARDING PERMITS/INSPECTIONS INFORMATION:
UPDATE: The Permits Department will be operating out of the Municipal Court building located at 5432 Franz Rd, Katy, TX 77493 until further notice. Business hours will be 7 AM to 5 PM.
If you were impacted by Hurricane Harvey and your home or business was flooded, to keep in guidelines with FEMA regulations and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a building permit HAS to be submitted to the City.
To help our citizens, we will NOT be charging permit fees for any flood related permits. Here is the link for the building permit application: http://cityofkaty.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/HURRICANE-HARVEY-FLOOD-DAMAGE-BUILDING-PERMIT-V2.pdf
Please fill out this application and submit a list of work that will be conducted. We encourage you to visit our Permit Department at the courts building and submit your permit application (7 AM to 5 PM). Our Permit Department will be on hand to answer any questions you have and will walk you through the process. We are here to help you!
To insure you are compliant with City, FEMA and NFIP regulations, this process MUST be done. This will help insure any reimbursement that may be provided by FEMA and further insurance coverage for your home or business.
In dire circumstances, RVs are allowed on residential properties ONLY, but they must be connected to City water and sewer.
The City is here to help all of our impacted residents and businesses through this difficult time. City inspectors are already out assessing overall damage, and they will be visiting every home and business that was affected by the flood.
