Help available for damage

Recovery assistance grants are available for homeowners and commercial- and business-property owners who experienced damage from the July 24 storm that caused flooding in Englewood, according to a news release.

The maximum grant is $1,000, and a property must have sustained at least $2,500 of uninsured, storm-related damage to qualify, the release said.

The City of Englewood's Community Development Department — which oversees building codes, business resources and other development-related aspects of the city — is offering the grants, and the city is also waiving some building-permit fees, the release said.

For more information on eligibility and to apply, visit the links at tinyurl.com/ydaozpst or click on “news” near the middle of the page at englewoodco.gov/home and look for “storm recovery assistance grants.”

For questions, call 303-762-2343 or email commdev@englewoodco.gov.

City warns of impostors

The City of Englewood has been informed that individuals are canvassing neighborhoods and claiming to be hired by the city to access storm damage, according to the city's website.

The city has not contracted out these services, the website said. All City of Englewood employees have identification badges. Ask to see an ID badge before allowing an individual on property, and call 9-1-1 to report imposters.

City provides trash receptacles, waives fees

Englewood has waived the permit fee for trash receptacles in the public right-of-way — streets, sidewalks and alleys — being used for storm cleanup through Aug. 31, according to the city's website.

Although the fee is temporarily waived, residents and contractors must still request a permit for trash receptacles in the public right-of-way. Trash containers on private property do not require a permit.

For more information, please call 303-762-2500 or visit the englewoodco.gov/inside-city-hall/city-departments/public-works to download the permit ("Occupancy permit").

Englewood is also placing trash receptacles in the right-of-way for the public to use. 

Tree-branch disposal

To clean up after damage from the July 24 storm, Englewood residents can dispose of tree branches between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. at the ServiCenter at 2800 S. Platte River Drive (the old Humane Society site) through Aug. 3, according to the city's website.

Trees and branches from arborists or tree-removal companies will not be accepted.
