Re: Wrong fight

said by CableTool:

Comcast obtained permits from the city. Im not sure if an entity following proper procedure for construction permits is at fault.
If the permit had to be put to some arts committee that isnt for Comcast to do.. or even know about.

"Any change to public space in historic Georgetown must first, by law, be reviewed and approved by the U.S. Commission of Fine Arts and the Old Georgetown Board. Permits for the work were never submitted to either entity......A Comcast spokesperson said that the company obtained city permits and didn’t know the installation required further review. "

This is a joke. If this is such a big deal that municipality truly needs to clean up their internal processes and procedures to ensure an oversight like this doesnt occur again.

So you are saying Comcast is pleading ignorance?

Rules are rules and anyone who does business in Georgetown knows how that area runs.

Laws are for people, not corporations. Duh!

Not when you screw with the government drones who work for bigger drones who actually run government.

Comcast had to know about it. If they have been doing business in Georgetown for the amount of time they have been, they should have known.

Not surprising that they would "forget."

It is better to beg for forgiveness than ask for permission.
