Ruby Swigart, permit specialist at the Ravenna City Building Department, was very helpful today. She explained that a permit is required when a security system is installed because of safety. A building inspector will inspect the job to be sure it’s done right. If the it isn’t done right, there is a chance of a fire, Ruby said. One thing that hopefully won’t be a snag is the security company has not yet registered with the city this year, and they have to be registered before they do the work.
Time to get a permit. A permit for what, you ask? Why, a permit to have someone install a security system in my house. Why is that needed? I have to pay the city of Ravenna $35 because I want to protect my house and its inhabitants and contents from burglars. Anyway, I’m leaving early for work so I can stop at the city’s Building Department and take care of that.
I ate two delicious slices of pizza today for lunch, an unexpected treat provided by the Stow Sentry — namely Marsha McKenna, Mike Lesko, and Andree Niswander, all fun and wonderful people. The pizza was brought in by one of their readers, so you might say they were sharing the wealth.
