Heritage House given days to right wrongs or face lien

Posted: Updated:

The owners of the Heritage House have just a few days left to make safety changes ordered by code enforcement, or they'll face a lien on their property.

Two weeks ago, Albany's city attorney sent a letter to Greenbrier Holdings & Investments and owner Romeo Comeau. He ordered the owners to secure the property from casual entry, repair the fence, and secure the swimming pool so it doesn't allow for stagnant standing water to breed mosquitoes.

When we stopped by the property Thursday, none of those items had been addressed. Code Enforcement put up a new sign warning the building is unsafe and people should keep out. Greenbrier Holdings is appealing a judge's ruling that they must tear down the building. A pre-trial hearing is set for July 20th.
