§ 131-55 - Performance and inspection of work.

  1. All work necessary for the construction and required improvements shall conform to the requirements of these regulations. Such work shall be performed in a good and workmanlike manner and shall be free from faults and defects. All materials incorporated in such construction shall conform to the requirements of these regulations and shall be of good quality. Any work or materials not conforming to the foregoing standards may be considered defective and rejected by the Engineer. All work and materials rejected by the Engineer as defective shall be removed and corrected by the subdivider.
  2. The Engineer will be the town's representative during the construction of required improvements. He shall at all times have access to the site when the work is in preparation and progress. He will make periodic visits to the site to familiarize himself generally with the progress and quality of the work and to determine in general if the work is proceeding in accordance with the requirements of these regulations. The subdivider shall provide the Engineer in advance with a schedule of work to be performed outside of the Engineer's normal office hours and give the Engineer timely notice of the completion of each major stage in the construction of any required improvement so that the Engineer may inspect the work completed prior to the covering thereof, and the Engineer shall make all such inspections with reasonable promptness so as to cause no delay in the work. In particular, as described in Article X, the subdivider shall, in the case of the streets, give timely notice to the Engineer of the completion of subgrades, drainage base course and base and final surfacing.
  3. The subdivider shall give the Engineer notice when any required improvement is completed
    and ready for final inspection. The Engineer will promptly make such inspection and, when he finds that the particular improvement has been fully completed in accordance with the requirements of these regulations, he shall approve the same in writing. Such approval, in the case of a street, shall not constitute the legal acceptance of the street by the town nor shall it modify in any way the requirements of law for the acceptance of streets by the town.
  4. The subdivider shall promptly remedy any defects in any required improvement due to faulty workmanship or materials, which appear within a period of one (1) year after approval thereof by the Engineer.
  5. Notwithstanding the on-site observations and inspections of the Engineer and any directions given by him, the subdivider shall be and remain fully responsible for the performance of the construction work in accordance with the requirements of these regulations, and the Engineer shall have no responsibility for the failure of the subdivider to carry out the work as required herein.
Performance and inspection of work.
