POTSDAM — Potsdam Village Board members voted Monday on whether to survey two damaged structures, whose owners have failed to inform the village of their plans for repairing or demolishing them.
After receiving no notice from the owner at 28 Pierrepont Avenue, the village voted to have an engineer survey the property. The structure was heavily damaged by fire on October 25 of last year by a previous tenant.
“As of this time I have had no official reply,” said Village Code Enforcement Officer Gregory R. Thompson in a June 24 memo to the village board.
The fate of the property at 11 Pleasant Street is presently undecided, as the owner has recently died. The property was inundated by water from broken pipes from November 2008 through February 2009. The owner’s family — who now owns the property — must decide what to do.
“I would like some time for the state to assess the situation,” said Village Mayor Steven W. Yurgartis.
The board tabled the vote to survey that structure until their next meeting, in order to give the family time to decide the property’s fate.
