Application package was mailed 10/21 and the checked was deposited 11/12. I have found that the people who answer the phones do not have a clue as to whats going on. The last time I called...11/13, the woman told me that I was "in the systen" oct 19th. ( 2 days BEFORE I mailed my package) SHe then told me it probably would not be issued until sometime in March. In actuality......the permit was issued the DAY BEFORE I called.Congrats. Can you post when you applied, and when your check was deposited?
