Town Demolishes Burned Out  Zombie House on Broadway in Shirley

Farmingville, NY –  On November 2, Councilman Dan Panico (left) was joined by Suffolk County Legislator Rudy Sunderman (right) for the emergency demolition of a burned-out “Zombie House” located at 215 Broadway in Shirley. The house was severely damaged by a fire in October of this year. It was a dangerous nuisance in the neighborhood for many years before the fire and the source of resident complaints. The house was demolished 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.

Councilman Panico said, “While thankfully no one was injured in this blaze, the Town of Brookhaven took swift action to remove and clean up this dangerous eye sore. “
