They're pretty intense here. A code inspector doing a drive by fined a buddy of mine $100 for simply receiving a small lumber delivery at his house without having a permit.

permits


I can only give this thread 2 1/2 stars. The cast was really outstanding but the plot left something to be desired. It started out with an interesting premise, that showed signs of building tension, which never quite developed. Then there was a sudden burst of action that was really quite exciting, but the censors stepped in and the action ceased as suddenly as it began. The final acts were a rehash of the opening ones. So save your money folks and wait for the opening of "Why is the Money Hungry City Making Me Install a GFI?" starring Buzzzzz Allburn and Fryan Onail. I've seen the preview, and without giving away anything, the scene with Buzzzzz in the flooded basement when Fryan says "I'll plug in the pump anduhduhduhduhduhduhduhduh, "is too funny for words.
A misinstalled sprinkler system can develop a leak, undetected untill it washes out foundation supports or city owned sidewalks, even streets. We're in a drought, twice a week morning and evening waterings, nearby cities once a week. Leaking sprinkler heads get citations, undetected leaks go on leaking. Leaning and falling fences bring down neighborhood property values as do many other "i know what I'm doing, I don't need a permit. Its not a big job and doesn't involve structural or dangerous elements" projects. It's not just about safety or filling city coffers.
( That was the opening scene in the sequel;" Permits II, The Return of the Inspecter" ) Thats it for this week, see ya at the threads.

Why would you need a permit for lumber?

Was more likely a violation of rules about where you can stack and store supplies and for how long. For example, not supposed to block drives, garages, entries etc. Even your own. Unless you get permit or waiver. Not supposed to stack in direct contact with ground.

I suppose it could be an upperclass neighborhood that they want to keep looking classy.

" upperclass neighborhood that they want to keep looking classy." there is that, tho that's usually a homeowners association thing. Ya think over zealouse code inforcers are a pain, just deal with one of those.

I'd never own a home with a "Home Owner's Association" as part of ownership ....

There was a returned POW Marine vet near here, HOA jumped on him for having too tall a flag pole with too big a US flag. I've heard of same thing other places. He put up shorter pole near by with flag famous in Texas history, flag had picture of cannon and said "Come and take it." Mexican Army didn't take cannon at Gonzales, HOA didn't take flag. Same HOA did make a dad take down son's pitching cage. If you stood in just right spot, leaned just so,you could see part of cage between trees from street.
