given- I'm in California, as a local AHJ, I have always been told that my dept has no authority to issue permits or do inspections on public schools.
situation- there was a gas leak at a local grammar school (k-6). the gas leak has been isolated, gas shut off, made safe.
PG&E (local utility) will not turn the gas back on without authorization (ours or DSA). the school district ( district superintendent and district maintenance) have been calling me (AHJ) and trying to get me to "sign off" on it (issue a permit, do an inspection, final the project). we don't even have a FILE for the school!
I don't feel comfortable doing this, and I think it's not under my purview.
they want this NOW!
