Twin Lakes Village Board considers sharing building inspector with Randall

The Twin Lakes Village Board on Monday considered an intergovernmental agreement to share a building inspector with Randall at a committee of the whole meeting Monday night.

The board may finalize a decision on the issue at its regular monthly meeting in two weeks.

Both Randall and Twin Lakes have contracted with David Sturdevant for building inspection services. In an effort to save money in a slow time for such services, Randall sought a sharing arrangement with the village for Sturtevant’s services.

Sturdevant is is paid a flat $48,000 annually for his services to Twin Lakes. In Randall, he has been paid 80 percent of building inspection fees for his services.

The village, as well as the town, would likely save money if the agreement could be worked out, said village administrator David Cox.

The agreement also would likely include a cap of building inspection fees that if reached would give Strudevant a percentage of the fees as a way to compensate him for additional workload if such building increases, Cox said.

The agreement is proposed to be in effect only through 2011, giving both parties a chance to review it relatively soon, Cox said.

For Randall, Sturdevant would provide plan review and building inspection.

But Twin Lakes would be looking to formally expand Sturdevant’s duties to zoning and code enforcement at no additional cost to the village, Cox said.
