Twin Lakes approves sharing building inspector; Randall decision is next

The Twin Lakes Village Board approved two documents Monday that will allow it to share a building inspector with Randall for the balacne of this year and all of 2011.

The arrangement should save the village about $2,800 for the remainder of this year and about $3,000 in 2011, said village administrator Davis Cox. However, as part of changes to the village’s contract with building inspector David Sturdevant he also will be officially performing more duties for the village that relate to enforcement of junk and disrepair codes.

The agreement now needs to be approved by the Randall Town Board, which will consider the matter this Thursday night.

The arrangement grew out of Randall tying to find a way to economize on building inspection costs and generate more revenue for the town. Previously, the town was paying Sturdevant 80 percent of collected inspection fees. In 2009, a relatively quiet building year, Randall paid Sturdevant about $25,000.

This year, Randall will pay Twin Lakes $1,000 per month. Next year, Randall will pay $1,250.

Sturdevant was already working for both municipalities.
