Huntington cracks down on illegal housing

Code enforcement officers from the Town of Huntington uncovered illegal apartments at two addresses in Huntington Station as part of their effort to target code violations and unsafe conditions, the town announced today.
 
Town officials say they executed search warrants Tuesday at residences on Fifth Street and Beverly Avenue, uncovering a total of four illegal apartments and a slew of code violations. The violations included hazardous electrical wiring, missing smoke detectors and illegally finished basements. A total of eleven summonses and six state code violations notices were issued.
 
The latest investigations are part of Huntington's efforts to target code violators. Huntington Town says it has conducted 955 searches since Oct. 1, resulting in hundreds of violation notices and summonses.
 
A community outreach center slated to open soon will house the town's Code Enforcement Task Force and a new telephone hotline is being set up for citizens to report suspected violations.
