Default Re: What is Happening, part II

I belong to a group that is trying to restore a 1919 railroad roundhouse and government red tape is strangling us. Our president spends weeks on paperwork to get a grant from Heritage Alberta and within a month we get a notice we need yet another engineering report for, wait for it, almost the exact amount they gave us. The grant can be used to fix the roof, get concrete repaired OR pay for reports. :headbang: The place is solid concrete, the last people to assess the timbers said they were in remarkable condition and had no issue. Yet for some reason somebody has decided we need a new engineers report about every 2 years even though the same engineers have said we're good for another 20 years. :headbang:

We have however passed all our health and safety requirements and can now host events, finally. *happy dancing* We have 2 maybe 3 wedding photo sessions booked and a couple more interested. Slow progress but at least we're moving in the right direction.
