Judge Balbick: City can take enforcement action against tenants for code violations

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, landlords

One of the complaints of landlords in Batavia is that when there is a problem with a property, the city rarely issues a violation notice against the tenant.

It's usually the landlord that gets hauled ijudge_balbick_nicmeeting.jpgnto court.

It doesn't have to be that way, according to City Court Judge Robert Balbick.

Balbick spoke with members of the Neighborhood Improvement Committee on Thursday afternoon.

"Under city code they are both responsible," Balbick said. "I don’t choose who the defendant is. That's the choice of the city."

Council members Sam Barone, Rose Mary Christian and Bob Bialkowski were on hand for the meeting.

Balbick told them they could amend city code to require tenants to be included in any enforcement action.

Batavia landlord Terry Platt is on the committee, and he said he would certainly like to see Batavia become known as a place where, if you're a tenant and you cause a code violation, you're going to be held responsible.

“If we could work toward the tenant area and let the tenants in this city know that they are going to be held responsible, then over a five- to 10-year period this city could be just like Stafford -- Judge Muskopf set a precedence there," Platt said. "When you drive through Stafford today, you still slow down. He set a precedence. (Tenants will learn) 'Hey, don’t do that because you’ll get nailed in this city.'"

Balbick also suggested that landlords could call police for some enforcement actions against tenants.

“I’ve looked at pictures and the things that happened in apartments and it borders on being criminal," Balbick said. "Some of the damage isn’t just wear-and-tear on carpets. Some of the damage is holes in the walls and broken windows. You have your civil remedy but people may consider other remedies, such as going to the police. And have the police department address it as criminal mischief."

Platt said he's tried that route and the response from the police is always, "it's a civil matter."

Platt said 10 years ago, he and his crew were in an apartment doing work and they found a pound of marijuana. He said he told police and the police didn't want to take action, since Platt hadn't seen it actually being carried into the apartment.

So, Platt said he went to the tenant and told him he had two choices -- stay and he was calling the cops or move out.

“I knew the cops wouldn’t do anything, but I knew he’d get out if I said that, and he did," Platt said. "I wanted him off my property because I didn’t want that on my property.”

A good portion of Balbick's conversation was directed at explaining how court works for code-enforcement matters.

Disclosure: Terry Platt is my residential landlord.

Girls dress up for a real tea party at Richmond Library

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, children, Richmond Memorial Library, tea party

The phrase "tea party" has taken on a new meaning these days, but this morning a group of pre-school girls were on hand at the Richmond Memorial Library to reclaim the term for things more frivolous than worrying about government and taxes.

It was the "Fancy Nancy Tea Party," named after a series of popular children books.

About a dozen girls were on hand with their mothers, dressing up, decorating their own cups and plates and then sitting down to a real tea party.

Above are Mia, 3, and her friend Jadyn, 4.

Hawley taking on challenge of another term in Albany

post by Howard B. Owens in politics, steve hawley

hawley01.jpg

Batavia's Steve Hawley may not yet have a Democrat opponent -- if he ever has one -- in this year's 139th Assembly District election, but it's clear who he's running against.

Hawley, first elected to the Assembly in 2006, did something Thursday -- Tax Day -- he's never done before: Held a rally announcing his candidacy for re-election.

In announcing, Hawley made it clear, downstate interests, Albany Democrats and their leader Sheldon Silver, and legislative members who put party ahead of constituents' interests are his primary opponents.

"I’m going to be traveling as our conference program committee chairman to talk with the media across the state of New York about what it is that we stand for," Hawley said.  "I’m hoping as we tell them what we stand for, that they will read that, listen to that, hear that, and then check to see who their representative is, and whether they’re voting with Sheldon Silver or whether they’re voting for their constituents."

Hawley told the four dozen or so people gathered in the court yard of the Old County Courthouse that the Assembly Republicans have a plan to cut $4 billion to $6 billion in state spending. The plan relies heavily on eliminating fraud in social services payments.

Hawley said it's time that New York become known as a place that creates economic opportunity rather than as a magnet for welfare cases.

"We need people coming to New York for jobs," Hawley said. "We need people coming to New York for their families. We don’t need people coming to New York because of the programs that we offer for those who are not working or don’t want to work. We need to reward competence and hard work, not people who are full of lethargy."

Hawley is a Republican from a Republican district in a blue state. Even so, he said after his speech, that he remains optimistic that he and like-minded individuals can turn New York around.

In a post-speech interview, Hawley spoke more about the need for change in Albany and how he and fellow Republicans are going to try to get a message of change out to the whole state, not just Republican districts.

"We're going to travel across the state, whether it's Democrats or conservatives, incumbent or not, we're going to try and take our message to people across the state," Hawley said. "We're in a fiscal morass here. We're in a horrific position we've never been in before. A $9.2 billion deficit and the inability to say no and cut back.

"Cut backs and no are negative and they are very, very difficult and when people depend upon an elected position as their occupation they'll pretty much have a harder time saying no to somebody than those who do not. In the beginning, elected representation was supposed to be, step away from your full-time job, look at it as an avocation, go to your state capitol, do what your neighbors want you to do and then come back to your job. We've gotten away from that and we have to return to that."

Hawley said the goal isn't necessarily to get Republicans elected, but to change Albany.

"I think it's going to take Democrats, Republicans, independents, tea party members to take the state back," Hawley said. "Make it as central for the people who are going to Albany from their neighborhoods to be able to look at the entire state, as well in Manhattan and the three or four blocks they represent, or in the Adirondacks where it could take five hours to get from one end of the district to the other. Take a look at the 120,000 people you represent and then look at the state as a whole and figure we need to make changes for the state.

"It's not just a district job. It's a state job. If there are members of other parties who have different ideas, say in Manhattan, in Queens, in the Bronx, then they need to challenge an incumbent in a primary. It doesn't matter whether it's a Democrat or a Republican. If it's a Republican, fine. If it's a Democrat, fine. We need new blood. We need people who are not beholden. We need people who can open up the blinders on the sides of their eyes."

In his answer, Hawley mentioned the tea party movement and during his speech, a supporter behind him held up the "Don't Tread On Me" flag, which has become one of the symbols of the tea party movement. We asked Hawley were he stood in relation to the tea party movement.

"I think any group of people who want to participate in the democratic process and their government ought to be encouraged, as long as they're doing it in a way that is respectful of others, in a way that takes others' feelings into mind, and in a way that is non-adversarial in terms of violence," Hawley said. "There has been some indication of brick throwing and everything else -- most of the people I've talked to, and I was with a large group in Albany the other day, tea party people, a big rally, are not those kinds of people.

"They want to take their government back. They want to have a strict interpretation of the Constitution and they want to take government encroachment on everyday lives out of it. These are good people. These are people who want to participate. And this is America and they ought to be able to."

During his speech, Hawley made reference to medical marijuana and he's previously opposed bills attempting to make marijuana use for medicinal purposes legal, so we asked him if he would change his position if a scientific poll showed a majority in his district supported it.

"I represent the constituents viewpoints regardless of my personal belief and I know that overwhelmingly the people of the 139th Assembly District do not support medicinal use of marijuana," Hawley said. "I will represent their interest and vote no."

When asked how he knew that was the position of the people of the district, Hawley said he travels around the district extensively and talks with people about a range of issues.

"I can tell you as a guy who hangs out a little bit, I know how people think around here," Hawley said. "It's never 100 percent, of course. You just hope you're getting 51 percent at least."

Asked if he anticipated a Democratic opponent this election, Hawley said, "I would hope as always that there would be opposition. That's what America is all about and people deserve a choice."

post by Howard B. Owens in accident, Pavilion

A 7-year-old child was struck by an ATV in Pavilion at 4:18 p.m., Wednesday, and taken by Mercy Flight to Strong Memorial Hospital.

The condition of the child is unknown. The Sheriff's Office withheld her name from a report on the incident released late Thursday night.

The accident occurred on Walker Road in Pavilion.

The ATV was registered to Carolyn Manning. The driver was identified as a 12-year-old boy.

The report by Deputy Cory Mower says the youth spotted the child and tried to stop, but was unable to stop in time.

Pontillo v. Pontillo opens window on finances of legendary family business

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, business, Pontillo's

pontillos_corner.jpg

Staggering debts -- to the government, bankers and suppliers -- appear to be what led to the closing of Batavia's most legendary pizzeria in November 2008.

At the time the restaurant closed, suppliers were possibly owed in the neighborhood of $220,000, according to a document obtained by The Batavian. In addition to those debts, there were unpaid mortgages exceeding $354,000 and taxes of more than $250,000 due. 

Many of these debts, outside of the mortgage, which was amply paid off in foreclosure proceedings, appear to be unsettled to this day, including more than $10,000 owed to a local funeral home that handled arrangements for Elizabeth "Betty" Pontillo following her death on Aug. 5, 2008.

In total, debts associated either with Pontillo's Pizzeria at 500 E. Main St., Batavia, or with Betty's estate, exceeded $850,000.

Disputes over those debts -- how they occurred, who is responsible, and who allegedly stole what or lied to whom -- has pitted brother against brother in the Pontillo family.

John and Paul have harsh words for Sam, and Sam isn't talking, but in previous news articles, he hasn't necessarily been kind to his siblings.

John, Paul and Sam are the sole surviving children of Salvatore ("Sam" Sr.) and Betty Pontillo (Daniel Pontillo died in 1957 and Elizabeth Mullen died in 2003; her son, John Mullen, is an heir to the estate).

Salvatore founded Pontillo's Pizzeria in Batavia with his brothers in 1947. It inspired scores of other pizzerias, including a chain founded by Salvatore's brother, Anthony, in Rochester that bears the Pontillo's name.  

Last week, Sam, working with business associates from Rochester, opened a Pontillo's Pizzeria at the old Batavia location.

Both John and Paul say they resent how Sam is being seen as some kind of hero in Batavia when he's the one who brought down, according to them, the original Pontillo's, especially when, according to John, Sam cheated a number of local business owners out of tens of thousands of dollars.

Even as Sam enjoys a busy opening week, he faces the possible loss of the Le Roy location. Genesee County records show property taxes on those parcels haven't been paid in nearly three years. According to County Treasurer Scott German, foreclosure procedures could start on July 1 if the debts remain outstanding.

It's also not clear if the new owners of Pontillo's Pizzeria in Batavia can legally operate a restaurant under that name. The federal trademark for "Pontillo's" is owned by the estate of Anthony Pontillo, but both John and Paul contend that rights to the name in Batavia are still owned by the estate of Betty Pontillo. 

Whether Sam is part owner in the new business is also unclear. John said Sam has represented himself as a part owner; Paul is convinced Sam is nothing more than a salaried employee.

Tom Masaschi, a Rochester developer who purchased the Batavia Pontillo's location for $400,000 last December, and is reportedly one of the investors in the new business, has not returned calls to The Batavian.

On Sunday, when told John and Paul had spoken with The Batavian, Sam declined an interview request for the third time.

"It's been a long 15 months," said a broadly smiling Sam as he stood at the walk-in counter of the Batavia Pontillo's, which was packed with customers. "I'm only looking forward now."

Police Beat: Three Clinton Street residents arrested following child-welfare investigation

post by Howard B. Owens in batavia, crime, Darien, Oakfield

Cassi Ann Schutt, 23, of 111 Washington Ave., lower, Batavia, is accused of criminal possession of a controlled substance and endangering the welfare of a child. Deputies came into contact with Schutt as the result of an investigation into two young children found wondering on Route 33 at 9:05 a.m., Wednesday. Schutt is accused of keeping the children in a situation that was unfit and improperly supervised.

Lonnie Ann Fairbanks, 43, of 5263 Clinton St., Apt. 1, Batavia, is charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance and unlawful possession of marijuana. Deputies came into contact with Fairbanks while investigating a possible endangering-the-welfare -of-a-child case at 5263 Clinton St. Road. Deputy Brian Thompson reports that he found Fairbanks allegedly in possession of Schedule IV Propoxyphene and marijuana both in the residence and in her car. Thompson reports the alleged drugs were in plain sight.

Jay Daniel Lucas Schutt, 22, of 2 Gas Lite Lane, Batavia, is charged with criminal impersonation. Schutt allegedly gave deputies a false identity and fake birth date during an investigation on Clinton Street Road into a case of two children found wandering on Route 33. Schutt allegedly gave a false identity because he is accused of deserting from the Army. Schutt was turned over to the Army for transport to Fort Drum.

Jacob James Meinhold, 19, of 2537 Dodgeson Road, Darien, is charged with burglary, 3rd. Meinhold is accused of gaining forced entry to the Oil Doctor and stealing NYS certificates of inspection.

Edward Frank Finnin, 43, of 4063 W. Main St. Road, Room 6, Batavia, is charged with exposure of a person. Finnin is accused of urinating in public at 12:55 p.m., March 20, outside the Metro Mattress store on Veterans Memorial Drive.

Tonya E. Smith, 38, 3582 Lockport Road, Oakfield, is charged with criminal contempt, 2nd. Smith is accused of sending letters to a protected person in violation of a stay-away order.

Legislature hears from opposition prior to approving nursing home consultant

post by Howard B. Owens in Genesee County Nursing Home

It isn't often that residents show up at a meeting of the Genesee County Legislature and lobby representatives on a particular issue, but Wednesday about two dozen people -- mostly employees of the Genesee County Nursing Home -- were on hand to oppose the county hiring a consultant to study the options for dealing with the home.

Regular contributor to The Batavian, Bea McManis, said:

"Most of us were raised here. We worked here. We paid our taxes. We contributed to the well being and the safety net that the county nursing home offers for our seniors. We have not reached that point where we're looking at the county home as our safety net."

The legislature approved a $62,000 contract with Rochester-based Center for Governmental Research. In a memo attached to the contract, CGR outlines a number of possible options for dealing with the financially challenged nursing home that it says it will study fully.

Legislator Jay Grasso said none of Genesee County's seniors will wind up out on the street, regardless of what is ultimately decided regarding the home.

"The County has Medicaid obligations to our seniors," Grasso said. "That won't change no matter what happens. Nobody is going to be kicked out of their home."
