I have been working on a small project in Sturgeon over the past few months that involved subdividing, getting easements and development permits etc. The staff at the Sturgeon County office have been great to deal with. Prompt return of phone calls and emails, in fact usually calling me before I even had to call them. Thank you :)
I wish I could say the same for everyone I have to deal with. I have several Federal Government agencies I deal with on a regular basis and over the course of a full week I am on hold, listening to their 60 second recorded loop over and over, for a total that likely adds up to a full work day. I, of course, put the phone on speaker so as to keep myself busy with paper or computer work while I wait my turn, only to have them disappoint me when they finally do pick up, usually.
