Project Status Reports 5-8-2020
Property owners and agents,
My name is Ken Roberts and I am the Director of the Town’s Code Enforcement department. I am writing to notify you all that Myself, Ralph Magill and Kyle Bauman will be conducting rental inspections beginning May the 12th for the 2020-2021 school year and any non-student rentals. I understand there are some uncertainties with current government decisions that have been made and you may be making difficult decisions through the next few weeks. I just wanted to reach out, wish you all the best of luck and touch base with you to let you know that we are available to inspect your units. If you would like to schedule inspections please contact me at 570-784-7123 extension 116 and I will be happy to get you set up. Our Administrative Assistant in the department is currently off, so the 115 extension will until further notice, not get you to a live person.
In conducting inspections whether it be for regulated rental units or for non-student rentals, we will be using the following procedures. There will be no more than one person in the unit with the inspector. Masks are to be worn by both the inspector and any owner or agent that may be accompanying them. Social distancing of at least six feet will be required. Please allow the inspector to open all doors as they have to check them in their inspection and there is no need for two people to contact the same surface. If the unit is empty, without personal belongings, I would recommend allowing the inspector to enter the premises alone and discuss any areas they may find of concern when they exit the dwelling before moving on to
