Minutes 11/12/2010 Building Department Changes
Building Division (Power, water, sewer, buildings)
What type of law should we propose to either gain exemptions for eco-friendly communities or an actual law change for experimental sustainable communities?
Shall we go through all the laws and change them bits at a time?
Or shall we propose a variance law that exempts us from these laws in general.
Is the government trying to protect people too much? For example, Dept of Health does not recognize water catchment as a viable water source, but this is the usual source of water in our area. Gov should make minimum guidelines and then have a disclaimer that they are not responsible for individual choices.
The building division might be a more difficult group to work with. We cannot go to the county clerks. they have a lot of vacancies.
