Default Re: Building Permit How Long Did You Wait?

When I sold a apart of my property to a contractor, part of the agreement was he was to provide all work on the property division, and any permits needed. Within a 2 weeks the property was divided, and 2 needed permits were in place regarding my house. Perhaps it pays to have a contractor pull the permits, even if he will not be doing the work.

$65 for a permit to tear out my wooden deck. $35 permit to replace it with a patio. I complained about the absurdity of it and they said skip the $65. Asshole neighbor calls when he sees tools come out, so now I just display an old permit when I do work on the place.
