Greetings: Wondering if you all think that a public project (on a case by case basis) should be exempt from the "staining material" ordinance, if in a less-sensitivearea and appropriate containment measures are taken...?
Si, Claro...however, public projects are more easily controlled, and, the sheer number of private projects that could utilize this material makes the risk of "stain" more apt to happen, especially considering the chances of "tropical" events in this region....at some point, NO amount of containment would prevent runoff from a site...just fishin', guys.
That's not my experience. I'm looking out my window at a suppossedly public project and its very poorly managed. I don't mean to bitch-slap my coworkers, but they have other demands on their time, and most local governments are running lean these days - not enough resources to self police.
If its so easily controlled, then what's the problem following the rules? Are they too burdensome? If so, why does everyone else have to bear that burden?
maybe not TOO burdensome, but they do require an alternate source of material, and that material may be a bit more expensive to use...BUT, on a "public" project, the public is the owner and receives the benefit of the project, which really isn't the case on most private projects...since its the public's money being spent/invested, I thought that maybe we could give them (on public projects) a little "break". No?
