Man calls Chief to speed up permit process
I don’t suggest you do this, but I thought I’d share this story.
You asked me when we spoke last friday to keep you updated on my FID
process. Like I had explained I had called weeks ago and was met with
an irritated secretary that told me they were months and months behind

On wednesday of this week I received a VM from the Lt. saying all was
