#1 Discuss the condemnation order issued against the structure known as Fisherman’s Cove. On September 10, 2009, the Town Board granted a 12-month extension to the raze order issued for the Fisherman’s Cove.
Attorney John St. Peter opined in a letter, dated August 2, 2010, that due to a 2006 change in State law pertaining to the 50% rule applied to non-conforming structures that were destroyed by violent wind, vandalism, fire, flood, ice, snow, mold or infestation; the owner must be allowed to restore the structure to the size and use immediately before damage or destruction and expand it if it is necessary to meet applicable State or federal building requirements. Bryan Perl and Thad Paul were instructed during the August 9th, 2010, meeting to return to the September 13th meeting prepared to present their plans for the structure. Messrs Perl and Paul failed to appear at the September and October meetings.
The extension of the raze order expired September 10th. Attorney John St. Peter sent a letter (dated 11/1/10) to the owners informing them that they must inform the Board of their decision within 30 days. Supervisor Simon objected to portions of the wording used in the letter. He wanted the letter re-written and re-sent. No action was taken by the Board regarding sending a revised letter.
Mr. Perl’s attorney, Patrick A Dewane, Jr., submitted a letter to the Town’s attorney, dated December 6, 2010, stating that Mr. Perl has commenced litigation against the insurance company. The letter states that the insurance company has offered only a fraction of the cost of rebuilding.
Based upon the communication from Mr. Perl’s attorney, Attorney John St. Peter recommends a 90 day extension of the deadline stated in the Town’s 11/1/10 letter to Mr. Perl. Mike Wirtz moved to table further action for 90 days, pursuant to Attorney St. Peter’s recommendation, with the stipulation the Town Board receives communication regarding any action or decisions entered into by the Court, seconded by Jim Rosenthal. Motion carried (5-0).
