Subject: Request: Building Permit Records

To whom it may concern,

I am writing to request permitrecords from Biddeford city, Maine on behalf of Buildzoom. 

BuildZoom helps people hirethe best local contractors, and we strive to give consumers a clear picture ofcontractors’ track records. In particular, we post information on buildingpermits pulled by every contractor online as a free service to thepublic. 

We do business in Biddefordcity and would like to provide the service to its residents. 

Can you please provide us with a report of all building permits processed by your department since Nov 14,2018?

Such reports typically:

- Are referred to as a Permit Activity Report, a Permit Fee Log or a Monthly Permit Report.
- Include all permits broadly related to work on new and existing structures, such as structural, electrical, plumbing, mechanical, demolition, solar, HVAC, and gas permits, as well as anyother kind of permit related to construction, renovation and maintenance.
- Contain (i) property address fields, (ii) permit type fields, (iii) a permit value or estimated job value,(iv) a permit status field and (v) dates associated with the permit, such as an application date, an issue date and an expiry date, as well as (vi) the details of the contractor(s) who performed the work and, of course, (vii) a description of the permitted work.

We would like to request the records either via FTP or email delivery. An Excel or CSV format would be ideal, but a PDF or scanned file would also work. 

Please feel free to email me or call Vidhan Agrawal, the Product Manager for our Data Platform at (415) 890-3706.

We greatly appreciate your help and thank you in advance for your assistance!
