The fees and/or costs charged by such engineer, consultant or attorney in connection with such review or inspections will be charged against the sum deposited. Any portion of the review amount remaining shall be returned to the applicant with 45 days of final action on the application, and any portion of the inspection amount remaining shall be returned to the applicant within 45 days after issuance of the certificate of occupancy.
As used in this resolution, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
- HIGHWAY IMPROVEMENTS AND UTILITIES
- Include the roadways and the utilities within or without the roadways, including sanitary sewers, storm sewers, water mains, parking areas, if any, grading, landscaping and drainage facilities and other appurtenant or related structures and equipment (hereinafter collectively called "highway improvements").
It is the duty of the Town Engineers to make inspections of highway improvements.
It is the duty of the owner/developer to furnish to the Town Engineers a tentative construction schedule and to request of the Town Engineers, at least on 48 hours' notice, that the Town Engineers make such inspections.
If such inspections reveal that the highway improvements are installed defectively or not in accordance with the approved plans, the Town Engineers shall notify the appropriate town official and the owner/developer or its engineer/architect of such defects. It shall be the duty of the owner/developer to correct such defects.
After the owner/developer has completed the highway improvements, the Town Engineers shall make a final inspection to prepare, when necessary, a punch list of items to be completed before the highway/street may be accepted by the town. After the owner/developer has completed the punch list, the Town Engineers will make a follow-up inspection.
After the follow-up inspection has been made, the Town Engineer shall file a written report with the Highway Superintendent and with the Building Inspector. Such written report shall include the times and dates of on-site inspections and the purposes thereof.
If requested by the Building Inspector or the Highway Superintendent or other town official, the Town Engineers shall make additional or special inspections to the residential or nonresidential buildings.
The cost of such special or additional inspections shall be in the first instance borne by the town, but the owner/developer shall, prior to the issuance of a certificate of occupancy for a building, fully reimburse the town for the cost of such special or additional inspections attributable to the building for which a certificate of occupancy is sought.
It shall be the duty of the Town Engineers to inform the Building Inspector of the amount of the cost of such additional or special inspections and the building to which such cost is attributable, and it shall be the duty of the Building Inspector to collect such amount prior to the issuance of such certificate of occupancy.
