So Close, and Yet So Far...

The crew showed up today and made a lot of progress on the patio. They were almost finished, when the East Point Code Enforcement Officer arrived and issued a citation and a stop work order. A few weeks ago, I asked if we needed a permit to build a patio such as this and I was told that a permit was not required since it was not a load bearing wall structure (nothing was being built on top of the foundation) and because it wasn't part of the residence. The CE Officer said it looked like just decoration to her, but she called it in to her supervisor and was told to issue a citation and a stop work order.

Now the project is on hold pending the approval of the permit. As I understand it, it will take 5 business days for Planning and Zoning to approve the permit. So, if all goes well, we should be able to begin work again near the end of next week.

Seems to me the great city of East Point should be more interested in cleaning up there own properties and right of ways!

It would seem they should be more likely to get rid of trash in the midst.

It seems to me that people should be more morally obligated to add a signature. Especially, if you find things to be problamatic. (sp?)
