A "town hall" style meeting is set for tonight at the Port Chester Senior Center to provide answers to local residents on Port Chester's amnesty program designed to help property owners clear up building violations and related problems.
The amnesty, which began Oct. 1, runs until Dec. 31, when the last applications for the program will be accepted by Port Chester. Tonight's question-and-answer session on the program is set for 7 p.m. at the senior center, 222 Grace Church St., behind Village Hall.
Under the amnesty program, property owners will not be required to pay the normal fines associated with violations of local and state building laws. However, to be eligible for the amnesty, property owners must file applications and pay connected fees by the Dec. 31 deadline.
Those who enter the amnesty program benefit from:
- No fines
- No penalties
- Waived or reduced fees
- A streamlined process
- Free consultation with the village
