Please share in writing your situation with Jennifer Ticknor of the NYS Attorney General's Office,Read Morea nd/or hire an attorney from outside of Port Chester to help you plead your case before a judge. Bea has provided the contact information for the AG's office above, including the case number for homeowner complaints. Aidan summed up the current situation nicely. Those of us who have paid the village's fees and played by the rules for decades on end are now being punished by the village whose own obvious negligence, incompetence and apparent corruption got us into this CO/Code Enforcement/Amnesty mess -- much of which may in fact be a pretext for revenue generation. Raising money by the recent blanket-nullification of COs and In Lieu of Letters, all of which were issued by the village and used in thousands of real estate transactions, is beyond unconscionable. It's perverse because of the amount of unnecessary pain it's inflicting on innocent homeowners who cannot sell or refinance without new documentation, which can take over a year to secure. And that's just one example of the problems the village has been causing innocent homeowners. Once amnesty expires, any homeowner who hasn't signed up for it can be fined for the supposed violations of previous owners, going back decades. (Interestingly, the very documents the village says are unreliable will magically be reliable enough for them to fine homeowners.) This all means more pain for homeowners and more revenue for village coffers. There does seem to be a method to the madness currently exhibited by the local powers that be. Please contact Ms. Ticknor.

I received a letter from the Integrity division of the attorney general's office. It stated thatRead Morebe cause my letter was signed by one person, they do not "provide legal opinions nor represent individuals." I called the NYC office to tell them that I was representing many people with my letter, and was told that I should get as many people as possible to write, e-mail- or FAX to them. New York state requires that everything be put in writing. I would have put it in the Westmore News this Friday, but since I had a letter in the paper this past Friday, I will have to post it next Friday. Write to: Kelley Donovan Division of Criminal Justice Office of the Attorney General 120 Broadway New York, New York 10271 FAX--212-416-8026 E-mail--public.integrity@ag.ny.gov Use Complaint # 14-2014 when you contact them no matter which method you use. Please help me get rid of this terrible program by contacting the attorney general's office. I was told to get as many people as possible to get them to even consider investigating.
