PERINTON, N.Y. — Town Supervisor Ciaran Hanna disclosed on Thursday that the Town of Perinton Building and Codes Department issued the Pines of Perinton six appearance tickets for 26 code violations in six apartments. This is the culmination of a months-long effort by the town to address these issues with the property owner. Listed among the violations are water leaks, drywall damage, kitchen and bathroom repairs, window repairs, and rodent infestation.
“Code enforcement is a serious matter and one that we do not take lightly in the Town of Perinton,” said Hanna. “The Town will continue to do our part to hold the Pines of Perinton accountable for providing safe and healthy living conditions for their almost 1,200 residents. Our Perinton Building and Codes officials have made every attempt to work with the Pines management and maintenance staff to see repairs made. We are very disappointed that only two of the eight current violations were addressed. The town shares in the frustration of the residents, and we will take all necessary steps to ensure these health and safety issues are addressed.”
The Town issued the Pines of Perinton eight compliance orders on July 13, 2022, with comply-by dates of July 29, 2022. After speaking with all involved tenants, only two units had been addressed by the deadline. The Pines did not correct the remaining violations during the compliance period, nor did their management reach out to Building & Codes officials to discuss a path forward. Appearance tickets were issued to the Pines of Perinton on Tuesday, August 2, 2022.
The Pines of Perinton court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday, August 16, 2022, at 3 p.m. unless the violations are successfully remediated before that date.
Perinton Building and Codes actively performs inspections and follow-ups on all complaints filed with the office. Any violations of the codes, rules, regulations, ordinances, or local laws of the Town of Perinton and New York State Property Maintenance Code are investigated. All complaints with confirmed violations result in the Town addressing the property owners to ensure they comply with local regulations. When voluntary compliance is not achievable, Town code enforcement will, by law, use due process to achieve compliance.
