The fire permit that stopped a thousand ships

Those closely following the city’s legal battle with EagleRidge Energy will note that Tuesday’s City Council meeting shows the fire code will be amended. At issue seems to be the “operating” permits currently issued by the fire department to show compliance with the international fire code. It looks like the city will be moving that authority over to the gas well inspections division.

I got a copy of the fire department permit that was issued to EagleRidge prior to the beginning of operations on Bonnie Brae St. Here it is: Eagleridge Fire Dept Permit

Although no one has said this to me on the record, it’s a good guess that this may be what caused the city to retreat earlier this week.

I have a full story coming in this Sunday’s paper.
