Town of Islip Toughens Laws Against Decrepit, Vacant Properties

Islip, N.Y. – The Islip Town Board continued in their commitment to public safety by unanimously passing legislation that will strengthen the Town’s ability to prosecute the owners of dilapidated properties, as well as the owners of abandoned dwellings. The new measures include the formation of a Vacant Property Registry, which will allow Town Fire Marshals and Code Enforcement personnel to track the condition of these dangerous properties in a more effective manner. The punishment for violating the new blight codes includes an escalating series of fines and other penalties.
