What municipality? In order to answer your question, I really need to see the context.

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
bear with me; I inadvertently sent a question out to the rest of you, at the same time I was sending it to the attorney who answered me a few days ago regarding the same situation. I will see what he says and if not satisfied, or want another opinion, I will continue with you; I will however be glad to compensate (tip) you in any regard. sorry again
