IF YOU ARE AWARE OF ILLEGAL OVERCROWDING CONDITIONS YOU SHOULD E MAIL BUILDING@GREENBURGHNY.COM. THE FOLLOWING E MAIL WAS RECEIVED FROM THE BUILDING INSPECTOR, JOHN LUCIDO.
Last night, Code Enforcement Officers from the Building Department and officers from the Police Department went out on an inspection for overcrowding and illegal boarders at 206 Warren Avenue. They found evidence that although the owner does not live in the house, a one-family residence, approximately 15 to 16 people do reside there. We are processing approximately 30 to 40 summonses for various violations that were discovered. Recently, I forwarded a report to the Town Board revealing that in the 15 months since the Town Board approved the hiring of the Code Enforcement Officer, $134,000 was collected in fines for a range of quality of life violations, including harboring illegal boarders. The summonses were issued by all of the staff members but I used the window of the time since the new member of the department came on board. Last night’s accomplishment indicates to me that the public is not aware of the harsh fines now being meted out by Justice Friedman in these illegal and unsafe living circumstances. John Lucido, Building Inspector
