June 28, 2016 (San Diego) The County Board of Supervisors will wave the fees necessary to rebuild and remove debris. The county will also assist people in removing that debris and have free trash bins. This has been done by the county in the past. So it is fair to do it now. If people want larger homes, the permit will be prorated to the new size.
As long the buildings remain the same size, those who lost homes will not need to pay for the permits. There were five homes lost during the fire. County Board of Supervisors Diane Jacob also urged residents to stock up on enough food and water for at least 3 days. This is a standard disaster recommendation given by disaster officials.
There is also a new reality. This is expected to be a very dangerous fire season. The rainy season produced enough water to get grasses to grow, but not enough to get over the drought. So we are expecting fires that will behave in more dramatic ways.
