I called the county today and talked to the engineer assigned to review my permit application. He told me he wouldn't get to my application for two weeks! I about had a heart attack. I was speechless. It's hard to know what to say to these people that have power over you. I pleaded my case that this is a simple project and asked if he could fit it in between some of his bigger projects. I mean, it must take about 10 minutes for him to sign off on the plans. I didn't push it though. The last thing I want is to piss the guy off and have him sit on the application for another two weeks just to spite me.
