Letter: Abandoned House With Raccoons in Manorhaven

I sent a letter by certified mail on August 9 addressed to Mayor Meehan and trustees about the abandoned house located at 11 Manhasset Avenue. The Nassau County website at: nassaucountyny.gov/mynassauproperty has a picture of this house taken on April 4, 2001 over 10 years ago showing the deteriorating condition from the roof to the peeling walls. This house has been vacant and abandoned for years and the presence of raccoons in this house adds to a longstanding problem.

I understand that Village Code section 112-3 pertains to this property: “All exterior exposed surfaces shall be repaired, coated, treated... to protect them from deterioration. Said surfaces must be maintained....”

The surrounding property owners including myself have been contacting the village for quite some time seeking remedies to this neighborhood blight. I also attended the August 25 Village of Manorhaven Trustees Meeting and spoke about this issue.

I ask that you examine this property and seek remedies to this abandoned and derelict house.
