Town Board to vote tomorrow to schedule a hearing to demolish structure at 5 Teramar Way Greenburgh
Release Date: September 05, 2016

Over the years we have received some complaints from residents about the condition of a home at Taramar Way. The Town will be taking action. At tomorrow's special Town Board meeting we will vote on the following resolution.  We are setting a public hearing for September 28th to authorize the Building Inspector to take the next steps that could lead to the demolition of the structure. We continue to hope that the owner/bank will clean up the property and make it safe. If they do not we will take action.

You are invited to attend and speak up at the public hearing.
