How do I request a fee waiver or fee refund for a fire rebuild?

The Malibu City Council adopted a resolution authorizing the waiving of City fees for rebuilding like-for-like or like-for-like plus 10% for rebuilding structures destroyed or damaged in the Woolsey Fire. The fee waiver will be offered for the period of November 8, 2018 through December 30, 2020. The fee waiver only applies to an owner that used the property as a primary residence at the time of the Woolsey Fire.  If the property is sold, the new owner is not eligible for the waiving of fees.
