§ 23-27.3-114.2. Expiration of permit.
Any permit issued shall become invalid unless the work authorized by it shall have been commenced within six (6) months after its issuance, or if the work authorized by the permit is suspended or abandoned, for a period of six (6) months after the time the work is commenced; provided, that, for cause, an extension of time for a period not exceeding ninety (90) days has not been granted. All extensions must be in writing and signed by the building official. For purposes of this section, any permit issued shall not be considered invalid if the suspension or abandonment is due to a court order prohibiting the work as authorized by the permit.
