Expect a call about Building Permits. The City of St. Pete Beach is asking area contractors, engineering firms and property owners to help it restore data that was overwritten during a recent data security incident involving the City’s computer servers. Property owners, contractors and engineering firms can expect calls beginning this week requesting copies of applications for building permits, architectural designs and plans, as well as other materials, for buildings within the city limits.
