This is a big pet peeve of mine, and has become today's office there....
I despise other professionals who do not do their own due diligence. I am talking about architects, engineers, surveyors, developers, and sign companies who do NOT read local Codes and Ordinances. Moreover, they are rarely familiar with State Statutes or Adminiatrative Codes that regulate their projects.
I work for a City, and government's responsibility is to regulate. Now, I will certainly explain Code and Ordinances if there are questions, but I will not do their work for them. If they haven't even tried to read the regulations, I will politely ask them to review the requirements and return to me with questions. They are PROFESSIONALS, and this is part of their responsibilty.
Anybody else fell this way. I may have oversimplified the post, but are my expectations too high?
