Sorry WS. Its never a good time mid summer to be doing this. The busy season is in full swing on a regular year. And 2020 the hits just keep coming. For crying out loud we SKIPPED murder hornets. They are still here but we can't even right now.
Kinda wish the hornets were back in the news more than covid. We need a break from it for sure. I can only imagine what will happen in the fall. So permits, yeah, how long do they usually take during this time of year if we weren’t in a pandemic?
Every jurisdiction has its own timeline but usually permits were fairly quick for most. With shutdowns backlogging everywhere, and some places like yours on the verge of shutting down again, I can't even begin to guess.
