Thanks Blake for appointing city building official

Oct 10, 2013 Full story: Milford Mirror

I am writing this letter to express my deep appreciation to Mayor Ben Blake and the City of Milford for their appointment of a new City Building Official, Joe Griffith, who recently took over as head of the Department of Permitting and Land Use.

I entered a comment previosly and it got chopped. Lets see if this one makes it in...

Milford strikes me as a place with heavy politics -- and probably decent enforcement of building codes. As I previously mentioned, there are never factual examples given of how awful things are/were. Only general statements designed to cut down an enforcement official who probably was just doing his job. The building CODE is clear on time for permitting, etc. So rather than speak in generalizations such as, "For the last decade it has been notoriously difficult for local builders, contractors and homeowners to work with the current building department..."

Really? For the last DECADE? You would think that someone would have made a file by now. You would think that there would be hard copies and facts to put in print. Where are the FACTS, Mike? I still don't see them...

Blake is probably just caught up in the politics and he is doing some favors for his contractor buddies by putting someone in there who may easily "bend." Just one man's opinion.

Only time will tell...and again I say,
Only time will tell...
