Is anyone else getting disgusted with their townships over reach into home improvement? I recently looked into my townships permitting requirements for a particular job and found out that at some point they made virtually all DIY projects require a permit. In my opinion this is totally outrageous. Replace a faucet or toilet, get a permit. Put new flooring in your kitchen, a permit is needed. Replace an existing light fixture, you're supposed to get a permit. This has gone way beyond safety issues in my opinion and is a matter of padding the twp. coffers. Needless to say, for most of this stuff they can KMA. Give these local yocal politicians an inch and they see dollar signs. Got no use for them at all. And they sneak this stuff in when no one is paying attention.
