Laduev, So in your wourld being an attorney the man shold have "known" to call the City of Marco Island and ask if he needed a permit to repair/refinish his dock.Correct?
If the answer is yes, where does this end? Do you call the City and ask to paint your house? Service you HVAC system? Replace a sink,faucet,toilet? Run a outlet for a tv on the wall? A new cable line ? Garbage disposal or dishwasher? My bet is the "City" would tell you those are all "permitted jobs" meaning you need a permit and maybee a contractor to proceed. Is this the same as crossing the street? Is this the concept you want me to accept?
I think the man did nothing wrong. He took pride in his property. He excerised is property rights to better his home. If I were him being an attorney I would challenge this in the courts and he would prevail as the ordinance is flaued due to involving electrical inspection in dock repair or refinish.
The only way they can do this is through ordinance. This would be like saying if you were to paint your home it would then be subject to any other inspections they deem necessary to "attach" to the ordinance, This is how they get more fees and control of the homeowner. I hope you see my point on this issue.
