RE: Enforcement Question

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If there is a building department you would.  A local government can only
have a building department if there is an ordinance giving the local
government to enforce building codes.  Some local governments don't have this
authority.

I bet you'd get some atention if you sent the building official a written
memorandum of the situation and conspicuously copied your lawyer and the
