The owner of a Willett Avenue home went through proper channels this week to obtain work permits after police stopped illegal work at the site twice in three days.
German Granados, 47, for obstructing public roads and sidewalks while conducting repairs to a Port Chester home. A police report listed the home on Abendroth Avenue, but the actual address of the building is 18 Willett Ave., according to the Department of Code Enforcement.
Granados was initially warned on Oct. 7 when police Lt. Roy Monroe spotted the Armonk man working with construction equipment and obstructing parts of public roads with barriers and cones, according to Port Chester police.
Although he agreed to cease work at the site, he was ticketed when police caught him working on the same home on Monday. Granados told police he thought he wouldn't be caught because Monday was Columbus Day, a federal holiday.
The home is owned by Nancy Granados, who also owns several other pieces of property in the village under the name "Granados Realty." In an e-mail to Patch, Nancy Granados disputed the police report, but did not offer details.
After police issued a ticket for a violation of village ordinance, Granados worked quickly to apply for proper permits through the building department, according to Assistant Village Manager Christopher Steers.
"They did come in as instructed by the police and filed for the appropriate permits," Steers wrote in response to a Patch inquiry.
German Granados is due in Port Chester village court today to answer the violation charge.
