North Hempstead, NY - North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board have announced that the Building Department will be hosting a set of virtual mobile office hours this fall.
"During these challenging times, the Town must continue to adapt to provide support for our residents,” said Supervisor Bosworth. "As we gradually and cautiously progress along the comeback trail, we understand that residents will have a variety of questions. These virtual mobile office hours will give them an opportunity to communicate directly with the Building Department from the comfort of their own homes."
The virtual mobile hours will give residents the opportunity to meet with the Supervisor’s Resident Advocate Lauren Summa and Deputy Commissioner Glenn Norjen of the Building Department, and have their questions or concerns addressed regarding their Building Department application. These office hours will be scheduled by appointment only. Residents are required to schedule their appointments by calling 516-869-6311 and asking to speak with the Resident Advocate.
Upcoming virtual Building Department Mobile Office Hours will be held on the following dates and times by appointment:
• Tuesday, September 15, 2020 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
• Thursday, September 17, 2020 from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m.
Town officials are also reminding residents that the Town Building Department reopened on May 28 as part of Phase 1 from New York State. The Building Department is accepting applications for minor work by US Mail or package delivery to 210 Plandome Road, Manhasset, New York 11030. Requests for the status of existing files and applications can be achieved via email at Buildings@northhempsteadny.gov. You can also schedule an appointment via this email address for the submission of large Building Permit applications. There will be no walk-in service until further notice. If you do not have email access, you can call 516-869-6311 for assistance. All other existing construction work comments or questions should be directed to the assigned inspector for that project.
