I currently live and work (seperately) in cities that are home to a major university. Am I alone, or do others deal with institutions of higher ed that seem to believe that they are exempt from the ordinances/building codes that govern the city in which they are located??? For example, this institution houses an equistrian facility. When they decided to build classrooms for it, they planned to serve the restrooms with well water. Once they learned that they would need to get permits for public water consumption from the DEQ, their response? "Well the horses seems to prefer the well water," and "We'll put bottled water in the restrooms"....seems like they hold higher regard for the horses than the students. They are always demolishing builidngs and never come in for permit, they ask that their site plan review be "pushed along,"and generally ask that their projects be top priority. For someone who gives no property tax to the city, and probably limited sales tax, I have no idea why we coddle these folks. arrrrggghhh!
