I swear I work with
I've spent half a day (and remember..."time is money") researching the matter, and I now have documentation my position is correct. Tomorrow morning I'm going to City Hall to see Mr. Inspector and go over it with him. It's pretty technical, so I hope he's up to speed and can comprehend the data. If he does, and will admit my position is allowed per code, life goes on. (I'm certainly NOT going to gloat and say "I told you so.") But if he is too proud to admit it and won't back down, or if he just doesn't "get it", then I'm in a quandary.
I can surrender and do what he asks, which will cost me several thousand dollars, or I can go over his head and fight him and probably win, but at what cost? "Win the battle, lose the war."
Grrrrr! I hate Mondays.
