Life Sustaining Business Frequently Asked QuestionsLife-Sustaining-Business-FAQs as of April 1st
Most common question: May I complete my residential construction project?
Residential construction projects that are substantially complete may continue to completion. Projects that are “substantially completed” are those projects that have been issued a final occupancy permit. For all other residential construction projects limited activities may continue to the extent necessary to stabilize the site, temporarily prevent weather damage, or make emergency repairs only. No new residential construction or non-emergency rehabilitation projects may be started.
SPCA Temporary Operation Changes
The SPCA is asking that if a resident has any calls regarding dangerous dog, injured dogs, or animal bites to a human that you can contact them. SPCA officers who are well versed in these scenarios will continue to mitigate them. If a SPCA dispatcher receives a call related to stray or at large animals, noise ordinances, or other misdemeanor complaints they will record the nature of the complaint, as well as information related to the complainant and an officer will seek to follow-up without putting community members at undue risk.
