APEX — You may want to wait to start that home renovation project.
The Apex Town Council voted unanimously Tuesday to waive permit fees for people remodeling their home, building a deck or adding a pool between April 2 and June 29.
The move will allow homeowners to shave up to several hundred dollars off the cost of big home projects. The town government estimates it will lose about $21,000 in revenue.
Council member Bryan Gossage said that if other tax-free holidays are any indicator, his proposal might spur a mini-boom in Apex in home remodeling.
"Sometimes it's that little bump," he said, "that pushes them over the edge."
