Snow and Red Tape Leads To Roof Collapse
On Sunday, February 16, 2014, the roof collapsed at 156A Depot Road in Huntington Station. The site was formerly a family owned Poultry and Distribution business that closed 3 years ago. The site is currently rented to another company according to “Brian” whose family owns the property.
Brian stated, “There are plans and permits in place to update the property for the new lessee.” According to the family member, the owners have been trying to get moving on renovations to the property but could not get the approvals necessary to move forward. They claim this has been going on for three years. After three years of red tape, the property has collapsed under the weight this year’s excessive snow.
No one was in the building at the time of the collapse.
