Unless he was housing dozens where fire safety could be an issue, the city was wrong.

Well, there are building codes that must be followed, including how many people can occupy a unit/home. This is why he was cited. I think what he is doing is admirable however, you gotta comply with the laws. Maybe if he decreased how many people stayed at his place for a given time, it would be allowed.

When I invite family over for the holidays, do I need to get a permit from the city? If I have to set up cots in the basement for the grandkids, do I need the government's approval?

God bless this guy, and the govt. can go pound sand as far as I'm concerned.
Naturally this is in one of the most liberal, corrupt cities in America too.

I don't know, do you? Like I said, I find it admirable & think there should be exceptions given the weather conditions but shrug, I don't make the laws.
