You make some assumptions and comments not based on fact or proper information.
If they haven't inspected the docks since 2016 - someones head
is going on a pike.
Before a dock is built, the Tennessee Valley Authority has to give it its stamp of approval through a 26a permit
. According to the TVA website, it has authority over construction aspects like the size of the dock - where it is placed and how it connects to the shore. TVA does no* regulate fire safety
Neither does the State Fire Marshal's office. A spokesperson confirmed that they do not inspect docks as a general rule
, but they will upon request or if they receive a complaint.
OHSA requires an exit strategy = ie someplace to run - it didn't meet that standard. When both ends of the dock is engulfed and boats around you are burning......
