When there's no BFE.
The rules or instructions say that sections E, F, & G need to be filled in when there's no BFE and that a survey is not required . . . no elevations are needed.
STILL . . . for years surveyors in Ohio(at least in Trumbull County, Ohio), have been required to have a surveyor measure, report and certify elevations in areas with no BFE's.
I have informed clients that they don't need an E.C., but they always come back needing one . . . according to the county.
I have asked this before and all I get is that they need elevations and the elevations need to be certified.
I wonder if the county(and the state), are actually doing nothing more than gathering more information on the monies of the taxpaying citizenry . . . taxation without representation.
I wonder if anyone else makes Elevations Certifications in areas of no BFE?
