Ticonderoga will review “nuisance” properties in the community this year.
Supervisor Bill Grinnell said he will meet with Ti Police Chief Mark Johns and Building Inspector Bill Ball to discuss properties that fail to meet town standards and could pose a health or safety risk.
“We will discuss these properties and take appropriate action,” Grinnell said.
The decision to review problematic properties follows a December incident when a water leak was discovered at the Sunshine Laundry building.
When the building’s owner could not be located, Ball had the town water department cut service to the property. The problem was eventually found to be a water heater.
The Ticonderoga public safety committee discussed seeking reimbursement from the Sunshine Laundry owner for town costs relating to the incident.
Ball pointed out the there have been a number of complaints about the Sunshine Laundry building, which has apartments upstairs.
Grinnell suggested a review of the town’s building codes and a review of problem properties.
