Spring Valley’s building inspector pleaded not guilty yesterday to charges stemming from the fatal March fire that killed a village volunteer firefighter and a resident of an adult home. Rockland D.A. Tom Walsh says 64 year-old Wayne Ballard has been charged with Falsifying Business Records and two other charges. The investigation into the Evergreen Home for Adults continues. Spring Valley’s Assistant Building Inspector, Ray Canario, entered a “not guilty” plea earlier this month on charges he falsified documents he filed with the state. They are both due back in court December 8th.
