Property owners and banks that must maintain foreclosed properties in Massapequa Park have been put on notice.
A new law passed Monday gives the Village more weapons to go after owners who create eye soars.
It allows them to clean up the property and put a lien on it so the owner pays the bill.
It also imposes up to $1,000 in fines for a first offense or five days imprisonment Those penalties can rise as high as a $10,000 fine or 15 days imprisonment if three violations are committed within a five year period.
We want to know what you think of these penalties. Are they too tough, or tough enough to be effective.
