Ive found out information that no one is trying to take advantage of and I wonder why. Ill be so kind to inform you right here on Breaktime so you can tell um where you heard it ! LOL. Also Ive read a lot of posts over the years that could have used this information. With out any further to do , Ill intoduce my findings;
All Planning and Zoning meetings are advertized in the papers with the agenda. Once the meeting is over the results are printed in the paper using “contracors, developers, & company names” in describing the order of action taken. Hint. For example;
“Last tuesday night the planning and zoning commision met . la la da . Big Time Developement Company applied for action closing a certain alley for the go ahead construction of a complex to be built as soon as the city engineer and the city building official review the building permit application and site plan “. Hint.
A city official paid by the public cannot reccomend any company or person in the pursuit of business interprize. “BUT”, they are a public servant installed in office to serve the publics needs of said description;
To point people in the right direction and assisiting with their ‘knowledge”, amoung their own official duties.
The Fire Chief , City Engineer, & the Building Official know in advance what will be built , where its going to be , who the owner of record is at the time , often times he will know about the site before the General is chosen , and sometimes all the names of people involved such as project managers , archies, and design people.
No matter what kind of vendor you may be that can service needs from material , to labor and porta potties , its a lot of business even in a small town.
Theres no doubt in my mind that a contractor could make a desk job living selling services just in that way. Not very complicated either . I offer my reason for its simplicity ;
Part of the folks paying are always from out of town wanting services in your town . They can pay for a crew to be shipped in or hire locally . Local contractors can compete easily.
Even in a small town there is so much work that it could be picked over and generals to pick from if that should be the case.
