[SEDXC] [SECC] Building Permits for Tower Bases

When I put my tower up in 1980 all I got was a letter from the Gwinnett
County Fianace Office with a copy of the Minutes of the Couty Commissioners
meeting.  The minutes said the Commissioners voted 6 to 0 to approve and a
note was attached saying this was my permit.

My insurance guy (same one now) said that was sufficient.  I had sent along
a complete diagram of my tower with notes on the base and all sorts of
engineering specs from Lou Tristao.  Lou is the father of Tristao,
Towermaster, and US Towers.  Sure wish I could get all that back (I kept
copies of the drawings).

I think they do issue a building permit now but for ham towers 70 feet and
under its free.
