To the best of my knowledge, please note the following regarding NJ:
Electrical Permits, and ALL other permit apps, and supporting documentation are considered "Public REcords", and are available for review by anybody. Procedure is that a RFPI/RFPR form be filled out, and the interested person will receive either a call or letter when the documents are available. (Depends on the age of the requested items, and how 'busy' the Twp is)
Therefore violation (fail) dates are visable on the front under insp. results, and ANY notes that the inspector writes on the back of the card are also "available".
As to the 'number' of fails (red stickers) any EC gets, well.....I know of no one who keeps a written tally, nor any way to obtain that info from the Computer System.
As to how many I write, basically...if it's deserved, it's written.
I'll have to ask a few EC's in my area how many they got!
As to my EC business, I've gotten a few over the years; some stupid, some deserved, a few that were 100% off the wall.
