THE STATESMAN: Town of Brookhaven weekly community court to crack down on illegal off-campus housing cases

Off Campus HousingThe Town of Brookhaven set aside one day a week, Thursday, for a Community Housing Court with the goal of expediting housing violations cases.

The court will deal with violations issued by town inspectors, such as overcrowded housing and noise and nuisance violations. The town held the first community court on Sept. 4 at the Suffolk County Sixth District Court in Patchogue, according to a town press release.
