Milo approves inspections for property sales

MILO--The Milo town board approved a local law for sewer connection inspections, which now requires an inspection of a property's sewer connection before transfer of ownership. The action took place during their regular meeting Monday, March 16 at the town hall. The measure was tabled during last month's meeting to address certain issues before being acted upon by the board during Monday's meeting. Milo Supervisor Leslie Church said the measure was initially tabled to address liability concerns with the local law.
"One concern brought up was in regard to damage to the property," Church said. She said the town's liability insurance would cover such an incident, although she added she would hope property damage would not be likely during the inspection. Church said if a contractor were to do the work, they would have to have their own liability insurance in order to conduct the work for the town.
Church said the property owner would not be liable for injury or damage. She said this type of inspection is already required under Keuka Watershed Improvement Cooperative (KWIC) law, adding property owners would normally want the inspection done when looking to transfer their residence.
"Should it ever become necessary, a court can order an administrative search warrant which would allow that inspection to happen," Councilman James Harris added.
Church said since it was included in KWIC law, the town felt it is important to have the regulation as well.
