North Judson Town Council Considers Request from Habitat for Humanity

A Habitat for Humanity Representative submitted a request to the North Judson Town Council Monday night.

Ernie Smith spoke on behalf of the organization and said that volunteers are going to install a wheelchair ramp at a residence near the Girl Scout Cabin on Talmer Avenue. He asked the council if they’d be willing to waive the $50 permit fee to do the work.

President Wendy Hoppe said since Habitat for Humanity is donating the time and materials, waiving the fee seems reasonable. Other members were in agreement and they voted unanimously to waive the fee.

President Hoppe added that while the volunteer group will not need to pay for the permit, one will still be issued to them so they can prove that they’ve been authorized to do the work.

Smith said they’re looking to get the ramp put in this Saturday.
