New York State...Hey, we're open for business, lol!!!

Only a five year wait.

And you wonder why people are moving out of this area.

Two year wait for permits in Portland for a camp site. One year wait for permits for a hotel and water park in Irving.

Five year wait for a permit to compost in Sherman is outrageous. Someone needs to be fired for such a delay. This isn't Russia or China is it?

Think of the loss in sales tax alone from the composting business, but hey, just raise taxes on property owners instead. We'll get your money somehow!!!
