Expired Elevator Permits

I've noticed a lot of expired elevator permits all around the Bay Area, all expired since late 2011 to early 2012. Since then, some have a temporary permit sticker expired mid-late 2012, but they've not been renewed for almost half a year. Anyone know what's going on here?

I find that it's not unusual to see outdated permits on elevators. I always assumed that it was due to understaffing of the inspectors, probably related to the economic downturn.

I thought it was just our office building that did that. The expired temporary permits did eventually get replaced.

I thought I was the only one that looked at those

I don't know if taking a year of civil engineering (even though I don't practice that field) made me like this.

What I find interesting is how they decide on the elevator FPM I've been on some slow-pokes for a 20 floor building.. something like around 100 or 120 FPM.
