(Permit) Wait Times in Wethersfield.
« on: August 08, 2018, 12:40:35 AM »

I dropped my app off in early July & thus far, the only “Success” I’ve known has been in terms of mentally noting a myriad of broadly differing timeframes/gen. info all the while resisting the gnawing urge to catapult myself onto the face of “Mr. Sun.” :wall:

NOTE:
The Detective has a whopping caseload & thus, I do *not* want to call until or unless I absolutely must.


When should I “reasonably expect” a call/update?

I don't know what to expect from Wethersfield, but 8-10 weeks is considered fast, and many people experience many months (have a friend who's took 11 months!). If you applied just a month ago, I would not expect anything any sooner than early next month, and then only if you are among the lucky.

Do not bother the detective or whomever is "processing" your application. If it takes over 90 days I'd start the appeals process rolling. You will just receive the pre-addressed/stamped envelope you included in your application package in the mail one day, out of the blue, with your temporary permit which will just be a 8.5x11 sheet of paper.

BTW: welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum. Wethersfield does a good job. I received my temporary a long time ago well within the 8 week timeframe.

Keep track of the time.  If you have not received it by 8 weeks, contact them to see what is going on.  Then appeal if you don't get it then.

It’s nice to feel welcome. :smiley:

Would you kindly expand upon what constitutes “....A Long time ago;” so I might compare & contrast as I pursue ‘Peace of Mind;’ as it were?

I got my permit in 2006 or 2007. I don’t think anything has changed much in terms of leadership or processing. If anything,
It’s gotten better with electronic fingerprinting.

The malicious Malloy/moonbat mandated machinations :crackit: (post-Sandy Hook) have slowed things down substantially.

I'd check with the SFLU to see if (or more importantly when) they sent your background check back to the town.  The town only has five business days after they receive it from the SFLU to  approve or deny your permit.  Any longer it's pretty much a "constructive denial" and you should start the appeals process.  Remember it's the individual towns holding up the process - not the state.  If it was the state - why would some towns be issuing the permit in 3 weeks while other towns are taking 3 months?

You make some good points.
I rang SFLU & they said they’re backlogged something fierce.

Perhaps I should call Records on Monday?
