12/6/19-additional waiver was granted to get sign off, fee will go to assessment if work is not signed off by 12/30/19

10/6/20-waiver for 90 days per LHO which ended on 1/3/21 under RLH VBR 20-66.  Per Nathan Bruhn, final inspection was approved on 12/31/20 and failed to have VB inspector closed out file prior to waiver expired; therefore, recommends deletion of the VB fee due to inspector error.
