The Tulsa fire marshal's office is struggling with a heavy workload. They have just two assistant fire marshals, yet they are handling 547 fire suppression system approval requests, and this could rise upto 852 when revisions are requested. Due to the large number of requests, it is causing significant delays, for example, Amazon facility took six months for approval.

To solve this problem, the fire marshal wants to secure $90,000 so that they can hire 8-10 local developers and speed up the approval process. City council members are positive on this regard and they are trying to secure funds.

Sounds like the step into the right direction. They really aught to hire more people in to help with this workload. That would be a big start to help alleviate the workload and the stress that comes with it. But would $90K be enough?
They really need to hire in more people. There should not be an eight month backlog to get through. Hiring a group to help with this would help a lot.

I think 8-10 more employees would be just enough for this type of project.
