The future of the Bavarian Inn property on Lake Ronkonkoma will be discussed at a meeting of the Nesconset-Sachem Civic Association, at 6:30 p.m. Monday at the Smithtown public library’s Nesconset branch, 148 Smithtown Blvd.

The site has been in limbo since April 15, 2007, when the once-popular restaurant and catering hall was shut down by Town of Smithtown fire marshals. Suffolk County holds a deed to the property because property owner Vincent Tramontana owes back taxes.

County Legis. John M. Kennedy Jr. (R-Nesconset), who authored a bill authorizing county purchase of the property, has said he would like to see it used as a county park with nonmotorized boating and fishing piers.

At Monday night’s meeting, members of the Walter S. Commerdinger Jr. Preservation Society will present a slideshow and discuss plans for the Inn property.
