I need to get someone from L&I to check out some code-related things at my row home in Fairmount, but have some concerns that I'm hoping someone on here can advise on.
Basically, I have a well-built roof deck on a sub-roof with a propane grill. I remember from some posts on the old Phillyblog that this was generally seen as okay in the city as long as the grill was propane and not charcoal. There are also 5+ other roof decks within a one block radius of my deck that also have similar propane grills, so I took that to mean that this would be ok. The lady I bought my house from (and had lived there for 20+ years) said this was perfectly ok as well. I of course am always careful and responsible and never leave it unattended if I am grilling. It's currently covered for the winter.
That said, when the L&I inspector comes will he fine me for this? Will he not care as long as it is not in use at the time? Or do they just not care about that at all? I also don't want to inadvertently "dime out" any of those 5+ neighbors if he sees their grills when he's up there. Any suggestions?
