Only 10 multi-family buildings in Milford — with between four and eight apartments — have not complied with town inspection requirements. Three owners have not responded to town letters.
The town's Neighborhood Task Force began its inspection work in Milford a year ago, with the main focus being multi-family buildings.
The state building code requires a periodic inspection of every multi-family structure, and a "Certificate of Inspection" for those that pass.
Of the 121 multi-family buildings in Milford with between four and eight apartments, 111 building owners have returned application and fee, as required, Building Commissioner John Erickson reported this week, in a letter to Milford Selectmen.
Of the 111 properties, 104 have been inspected, with 100 of them passing the inspection. Owners of the four properties with outstanding issues are working to correct the problems, Erickson wrote.
Of the 10 properties still outstanding, the town is trying to get the owners to respond to letters. For seven of those properties, the issue is the proper mailing address for the owner, and the town expects to hear from the owners soon.
Three property owners, however, have yet to reply to the town about their properties. Erickson identified the properties as:
319 Main St., owned by Lucimar DeOlivera of Church Street in Milford.
42 Green St., owned by Brian Frohn, of Washington Avenue in West Newton.
40 Jefferson St., owned by Maria Valenca, of Bear Hill Road in Milford.
The next focus of the town's Neighborhood Task Force will be inspecting multi-family buildings that have three units, and multi-family structures with more than eight units.
Applications for the certificate of inspection have been sent to these 49 property owners.
