Randall-Twin Lakes sharing building inspector advancing

Randall and Twin Lakes sharing a building inpsector is getting closer to reality.

Randall Supervisors Ken Mangold and Rose Nolan met with Twin Lakes Village President Howard Skinner and administrator David Cox Thursdya about the possibility of sharing building inspector dutires. The town and village now separately employ the same person, David Sturdevant, as a building inspector.

An agreement is being drafted by the village to cover the arrangement, Mangold said. Randall would have Sturdevant for about six hours a week.

An annual fee of between $10,000 to $15,000 was discussed as Randall’s contribution, Mangold said. Last year, building inspection services cost the town about $25,000.

In the recent past, the town has paid  the building inspector 80 percent of inspection fees collected.

Town officials see the shared arrangement as a way for the town to save considerable money in a period where building activity is slow. Paying a flat fee also would allow the town to keep more revenue from building inspections.

If building inspection volume increases, the town might then need to share some additional revenue with Twin Lakes, Mangold said.

The town may be able to vote on a formal agreement at its next meeting.
