Cost of a lawn dinosaur

The Oakland Tribune carried this information about a guy in Dixon, Calif,
who wanted to erect a 50-ft, 14,000 lb replica of a brontosaur on his front
lawn, sort of like a plastic lawn flamingo.  The Dixon planning department
wants him to pay $1044.63 for a building permit.  The guy says "outrageous,
it's art" , like the flamingos.  Just a little bigger.
