NORWICH – Continuous efforts to fix up property in the south section of the Town of Norwich have been underway for over a month.
Town Supervisor David Law said the property known as the Halfway House and surrounding buildings have been on the top of his priority list for some time. The property, which he earlier referred to as an ‘eyesore,’ has been in disarray for over a decade. Law’s goal was to get code and health inspectors to survey the property and rectify the problems.
Law explained to the board a month ago the area needed more than just cosmetic work, saying the living conditions looked to be unsafe. In the past month, Law recruited both the code enforcer and health inspector to view the properties in question.
