Town Seal

Farmingville, NY –  On September 27, Councilman Michael Loguercio (left) and Supervisor Ed Romaine (right) were at 510 Scherger Avenue in Bellport for the demolition of a burned-out “zombie house.” The house, which was destroyed by fire, generated numerous resident complaints and Town building code violations. The house was demolished by the Town in accordance with Chapter 73 of the Town Code which provides a “fast track” to rid neighborhoods of unsafe structures. The cost of demolition and debris removal is the responsibility of the property owner, and the Town places a lien on the property that is then placed on the tax bill. The County reimburses the Town and then they collect the money from the property owner. To report a “zombie house” in the Town of Brookhaven, go to the Town website or call 631-451-TOWN (8696).
