Dear Homeowners,

Thank you for your generous contributions. We were now able to complete our mailing to the remainder of the Setauket residents.
As you know we are strictly a volunteer organization and rely on your generosity to be able to send out our mailings.

Our hope is to continue to spread the word and keep our organization growing.

The Senate Bill I wrote to you all recently about has been introduced at the NYS Senate by Senator Martins. The new Bill number is S1173 . (Each time a bill is reintroduced it is assigned a new number)

This bill authorizes on-site inspections of housing in violation of zoning laws for enforcing illegal housing laws and regulations.
It uses the illegal context of the rental ads as a means to obtain a warrant to gain access to illegal rentals.

We have already received the support of Legislator Kara Hahn and Supervisor Ed Romaine for this bill.

We need to reach out to our Senators and Assemblymen and urge them to support this bill. The last time it was introduced it passed the Senate but failed in the Assembly. We need to write and contact Assemblyman Englebright to get him to actively support this bill.

Assemblyman Steve Englebright
Assembly District 4
149 Main Street
East Setauket, NY 11733

Our contact with Senator Martins Office is:

Peter L Faherty Esq.
Legislative director
Senator Jack M. Martins
946 Legislative Office Building
Albany, NY 12247

As you are all aware of we must attack this issue from all sides and continue to press for changes that support our single family neighborhoods.

I will forward more contact information by the end of this week.

Thank you for your support!
