permits are state permits and state law. Counties are responsible for following the state law but each county interprets state law a little different while processing applications.While I appreciate your response, are you sure that's right? That would mean that some judges in Albany County sign their own amendments and others let the County Clerk take care of it. I was thinking that maybe the county legislature would make the decision on how amendments are done. If that were the case we could lobby our legislator to change it.
