Another Pius House – Story Update
This home is owned by Community Properties, LLC which is one of Don Pius’ holding companies. Besides the obvious problems with the “No Crack” sign, there are many other issues of concern. Wires hanging across windows is a violations of Town code. Notice the kiddie pool in the bottom right of the picture. It is more than disturbing to think of children living in a dwelling that would post these signs. It is not shown in this photo, but there are 7 (yes, SEVEN) mailboxes at this address. This is a bit perplexing since it is listed on the Town HELIX as a single family home. Would it be consider too much of a hardship for the residents who are forced to live in this over-crowded roach infested home to share mail boxes?
We were told by a local resident who has been inside this home that there are more than 7 families living here and it is roach infested. Matt Harris, who is a long time Huntington Station resident and community activist asked one of the occupants of the home what was the purpose of the signs. The resident responded by explaining that “drunk people coming off the LIRR knock on the door looking for drugs”. The occupant believes the house was a former drug house.
As far as we are aware, all of Don Pius’ properties house Section 8 recipient’s, which means they are subject to regular inspections by the CDA. Does this mean that the CDA, which is a Town appointed agency, is subsidizing illegal housing? The purpose of this tax payer subsidized program is to provide safe and affordable housing to those in need. Our Town, under the leadership of Supervisor Frank Petrone has a long history of abusing the HUD system and it’s recipients in favor of unscrupulous slumlords. Not only does this victimize our most vulnerable citizens, it adversely impacts all residents of this township.
