The Town of New Fairfield has contracted outside services to help homeowners in the inspection of properties damaged by the May severe storm. The purpose of the inspections is to determine if storm related damage has significantly impacted the property assessment. The scope of work includes physically inspecting each damaged property and reporting the findings to the assessor. Most of the inspections will not require interior viewings. Property owners who want an interior inspection are asked to contact the assessor's office to schedule an appointment. The assessor's office is not performing structural/safety assessments and cannot offer advice on repairs. Michael Cilfone will begin his contract soon and will have a town-issued identification badge with photo.
