Patchogue eyes demolishing West Avenue home

The Patchogue Village board of trustees has set a public hearing to discuss demolishing an unsafe West Avenue home later this month.

Board members set a July 25 public hearing to allow a building inspector to give a report about the home, which was severely burned and damaged in a house fire last year, according to village attorney Brian Egan.

Village officials needed a ruling from State Supreme Court Judge Daniel Martin to allow engineers into the structurally unsound residence after the homeowner wouldn’t give inspectors permission to enter the home, Egan said.
