Sure, Rapid Repairs may have gotten off to a sluggish, ineffective start. But we’re hearing things have really picked up, and thousands of homes have already been fixed up thanks to the innovative disaster program.
But the time to apply is nigh! On Monday, December 31, the city will no longer accept applications for Rapid Repairs. If you have any work that still needs to be done, make sure you apply today. It won’t hurt you to get in line even if you turn the service down.
Also, if you’ve still got junk and debris in and around your house from Superstorm Sandy, the Department of Sanitation – which has done a spectacular job over the last few months – will cease bulk garbage pickup on Monday as well. So make sure you get that junk to the curb, otherwise you will have to hire a private collector to haul it away.
