MACCONANAIGH – 289 NASSAU AVENUE
Architect Jim Gilhooly appeared along with Mr. & Mrs. Macconanaigh
to appeal the decision of the Building Advisory Committee (BAC).
The BAC had approved plans for a new roof line; however, according to
Mr. Gilhooly, the original house plans were incorrect which caused his
drawings to be inaccurate. Mr. Gilhooly did an amendment to the original
plans, but never went back to the BAC. Both the contract and Mr. Gilhooly
were issued tickets to appear in court in February, 2017. Since the Village
Building Inspector was not in attendance, the Board decided to adjourn
the discussion and will meet with the Building Inspector, and the Chairwoman
of the BAC, and do a site review.
Motion to go into executive session made by Mayor Sean Haggerty,
seconded by Trustee John Lippmann and confirmed by all.
