Discover the Promise in Greece NY
Yes, the Town of Greece "Building Department"
and building inspectors are almost scary --
I'll tell you my most recent story of their
uncanny blundering: I paid a contractor to
connect my house to the sewer . . . $8,000 later [honest],
I found out via letter from the Monroe Country Pure Waters Dept.
that it was put a number of inches on the neighbor's property --
The Town of Greece inspected it all along the way
[it took one day to put this line in].
Then they wanted me to pay to move it or something . . .
I went nuts -- then they said they would pull the contractor's
earnest money or something to pay the legal fees to re-draw the
easement on the neighbor's property -- that was two years ago.
I haven't called because it's such a nightmare to talk to them . . .
I bet they never followed up on it. They are notorious for
being evil to owner-builders and even worse to
all contractors who are 'out of Greece.'
The Town of Greece made us install an $80,000
water fire system in our existing mall to "protect"
a new store with a kitchen. Everyone knows that
a Halon system is much cheaper and much better!
Put out a greece fryer fire with water ???
I don't think so.
I waited 6 months for the approval to start remolding
a building I had purchased in Greece.
Could not get the go ahead from the inspectors,
so I asked them how much the penalty would be
if we started anyway. They said they didn't know.
I asked them if it was more than I was paying per month
on the mortage, and they said no. So we started and got
the permit the next day !
