Okay, we are having problems getting people to comply with our subdivision regulations. I have advised the asst to the county engineer to deny applications for permits (septic, culvert, etc.) if the subdivision violates the regs in any other way (to get it all taken care of at the same time).
Now our septic administrator wonders whether he can "legally" refuse to issue septic permits if the regulations for that one permit have been met (worried about a lawsuit; I say get in line). I believe that if we issue a permit for anything, knowing there are other problems with the subdivision, to the person a permit is a permit and everything is okay? Am I on firm ground?
Does anyone have a broader "development permit" which addresses all issues at the same time? Is this a better way to go?
