How are your files organized? Are they chronological, by property, etc? Does each property have a file that contains permits, site plan, variance, etc. etc. etc. information? Or do you have separate files for each request?
Keeping in mind that we are a small community, the building inspectors have their own files and I'm not really sure their rhyme or reason. In my office I have separate files for site plans, variances, special use permits, rezonings, etc. Each type of request is organized chronologically. It was set up this way before I got here. If there is a specific project that required a few different applications, I note it on the inside of all appropriate files to reference the other files.
Basically, I am the only one who goes into these files, but I want to make sure they are organized as best as possible. How does everyone else organize their files?
