Porch Variance


I was on here last year talking about building a wrap around porch. Well had to get a new permit because other one expired. We ran out of money and time. The village called me the other day say I should not of been able to build porch with out a variance. Now they want me to pay 250.00 for thier screw up. To get a variance if I would've know that in the first place I would'nt have done it. I told them I'm not paying it. What do you guys think? Should I have to pay since they over looked it. They were saying I might have to tear it down.

You need the advice of an attorney, not a DIY issue

It could be if he was currently enrolled in law school.
Scan a transcript and ask another question.

Got my problem resolve. I emailed everyone at the village hall including the mayor. They reviewed all the records and found out they were at fault. They did a real nice job checking into everything. They wavied the fee.

Good news !
Sounded like they missed something
Especially if the variance was required from them
Ah, Village....I was thinking of the evil HOA !!
