RAMAPO, N.Y. -- The fire inspector for Ramapo is facing a loss in salary as a result of a demotion as well as a 60-day suspension by the Town Board after overlooking fire and safety violations at four area private schools that were uncovered by the state during inspections, according to lohud.com.
The Ramapo Town Board plans to vote on Wednesday on the proposal against Adam Peltz, who has been a town employee for 17 years without prior incident as well as a volunteer and president of the Monsey Fire Department, according to lohud.com.
The New York State Education Department's Office of Facilities Planning sent letters in March to Town Supervisor Christopher St. Lawrence and Peltz that were critical of his inspections and work at the Rockland Institute for Special Education, Bais Yaakov, the Green Meadow Waldorf School, and Bais Yehuda.
Peltz, 46, is currently barred from inspections pending review and has agreed to a demotion to an assistant role and a 30-day suspension, according to lohud.com.
