The Town of Chazy will shut down a local apartment building because it is not fit for people to live in, according to a statement released by Legal Aid Society of Northeastern New York.
The town’s code enforcement officer, Michael Tetreault, said he has notified the owners of the building located at 9627 Route 9 that it’s “unfit for human occupancy” under state and local laws.
The units will remain shut down pending a report detailing deficiencies and required repairs to bring the apartments into compliance.
Tetreault says tenants must be out by July 22, according to the statement. Housing advocates and town officials will coordinate with Clinton County Department of Social Services to assist tenants with securing new housing.
