red tagging
 n.— «But the town of South Cle Elum has brought the sale of the single-family house to a halt by refusing to grant an occupancy permit. They also ordered Vaughn and his partners to stop work on the home, a procedure known as red tagging. Building inspectors say the house doesn’t meet setback requirements because of the roof overhang.» —“Developer, town at odds over setback” by Don Gronning Daily Record (Ellensburg, Washington) May 21, 2007.
