There’s a building boom in Carroll

CARROLL — There’s a building boom in Carroll. To maintain oversight of surging new home construction, the town is poised to give its property inspector/code enforcement officer a pay bump. Under a proposal, funding for the property inspector would be increased from $39,130 to $60,000. The proposition was be put forward at the deliberative session in the Town Hall Community Room. If approved, it would appear on the Town Meeting warrant as a stand-alone article, not part of the general operating budget. The property inspector/code enforcement officer is currently paid $30 per hour as a subcontractor. Selectman David Scalley, who acts as the building inspector, has requested a rate of $40 per hour has a part-time employee or $50 per hour as a subcontractor.
