In my almost 80 years the hardest thing I have had to do is admit that I may be somewhat to blame for most things that happened to me.

I have been a contractor and a construction inspector in this area over 30 years, I am FROM Fruitland Park, and I had no idea. Just glad my friend let me know before I did a job in that area.

Hope I gave someone else a heads up.
I know from first hand experience that you are REQUIRED to get a permit for driveway widening in Sumter County, this is NOT a building department permit, it is a STREETS department permit and it comes from Bushnell, not the local Pinellas office. Also, I was tipped off about this from one of the 3 contractors I asked to bid, the Pinellas building department gave me WRONG information. I reported this to the streets department, and they told me this had happened before.

Looks like you better verify that statement before doing a job in Sumter County.

I agree. There was a nasty battle over that very subject when a homeowner tried to widen his driveway.
