7:24 Coordinator Report – Permit Issues
If you know anyone with an appeal coming up, contact jonathan. He’s hosting a training session to learn the process.
Appeals are out to 2016 with some towns reverting to old behavior. Generally, we’re seeing the same issues from the same towns as repeat offenders.
PSA: Always be completely honest on your permit application, because you can’t resubmit until 12 months after you’ve originally filed.
Hartford’s permit detective was denying applications and pocketing the money. We need to make sure he doesn’t get his pension.
If you ever had a restraining order, you MUST list it on the application, EVEN IF the arrest was erased from your record.
