Customer Question
i am in a dead...
i am in a dead spot with the local zoning board. I have a business i would like to open on my property. the zoning board refuses to write a letter of determination because they want me to get a use permit. The uses written in the zoning are so close to what i want to accomplish that paying for a use permit seams wrong. I have also learned recently that the zoning board is not payed by the government but has to generate its own revenue so it feels like they are pushing me to a use permit and charging me around 25,000 dollars to be able to run my business so they can eran a pay check. Also i was told i would have to pay up front and there would be a chance it will not go through.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
