    usually needed a "conditional use permit" from a city council or county commission.

    We fought to have them buy stuff for the fire department as parts of the permit conditions; ladder trucks, pumps, foam fire suppressant stored off-site, and so on.

    The fire fighters were torn, they wanted the stuff they needed, but they knew the local powers-that-be wanted the biofuels/ethanol/chemical/power plant approved.

    I lost more often than I won on those issues.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
