Response: If you have complied with the Department of Buildings and obtained permit and paid the requisite filing fee to get the deck done properly and he/she is still calling the Department of Buildings, then you would need to file Civil Harassment claim against her. It is one thing to call D.O.B. and complain, it is another to keep calling after you have already complied. Nevertheless, if you have not actually done the deck properly, then you need to do it before filing any complaint against her. This may be the reason why she is still calling D.O.B. She has no idea that you have pulled the permit, which is none of her business. All she knows is that the deck is still not compliant.
