I just purchased a home on Monroe Dr down by the water, I plan on mkaing it my permanent residence, The home is in need a some repair, which I had planned on doing before the new year, Unfortunatly I did not realize being in the Village meant a lot of different rules. I now had to hire an Architect to have buidling plans drawn up , I then have to apply to the village board for a permit...then I can't hire any Suffolk County Licensed Contractor , They have to be registered in the village . All this is TAKING TIME !!! with any luck I hope to be in by the summer... So what started out as a simple remodelis becoming a time consuing project,, I can only hope in the end it is all worth it ,Too all my new neighbors near Monroe & Forrest I apologize I have not been able to do with the house as of yet, But work will begin soon,( I hope )
Just do it an to hell with the village. If you aren't adding a second story or changing the footprint, F them! Do it, then go to court and pay the 100 dollar fine for not begging Gary for permission first. What can they do, make you remove it all? Hardly.

If you are "remodeling", new interior, windows, bath, kitchen, you don't need permission or permits. They have NO RIGHT to come into your house or tell you to stop working on your own house. Put up "no trespassing" signs and that ends it. If you hire a contractor that isn't licensed to work in the village, tell them that he is your brother-in-law and he is just "helping" you. Thats what I do and they have no proof to the contrary. Technically, you don't NEED to hire a licensed contractor anyways!

Keep the government out of our lives!

If you are only "remodeling", you don't need to hire village APPROVED contractors. All that means is that they paid the village to work here. It doesn't make them better. But please, do everything by the "village" book and report back on how long it takes and all the EXTRA FEES you will be paying.

I would first check with the TOB to make sure that they don't require permits also.(if the village requires them, the Town will also)

Good luck, I think you will need it.

(hint, little white envelopes stuffed with money works here in the village also. Just a heads up)

<quoted text>screw you. It's the last place on LI who's waterfront isn't privately owned. Leave the waterfront open to everyone, not the few who will buy it and place a McMansion on it. selling off the waterfront won't improve the village, it will bring a dozen people here that will over pay for property and taxes. How does that help? The "vision team" should do what they promised they would do, get rid of the slumlords and sex offenders and do it all while keeping taxes neutral.
It was supposed to be about tax neutral code enforcement.

I just saw Bob DeBona on Channel 12 still telling lies. He said "why are we messing with the Highway Dept. and Waste Management. All we need to worry about is housing issues". Unbelievable, how many times does it have to be said, highway and waste management will remain the Town's responsibity. Why do they insist on trying to get the village voted down by telling lies?
Doesn't the village now handle waste management and highway? Seems Bob didn't lie.

Then we can have the village sell off the land to developers and have big ugly being McMansions with bulk-heading all over the waterfront, never to see the bay unless you pay the Village Marina fees.
MBVEC is speaking to DEVELOPERS!!!!!

ALL YOU DO IS COMPLAIN!
"Waaaa sex offenders" Instead of building playgrounds, using the press, calling the cops. Collecting evidence that we're being dumped on and being a colossal pain in the tush to every sex offender in town. You bitch and whine "Poor us, another sex offender."
It's always everyone elses fault isn't it? You are the same people who took out an ARM (which you knew you couldn't afford) to buy a new car and a HD plasma tv now you're screwed and are crying "Waaa where's my bailout" I SAY GROW UP!!!
I still don't see neighborhood watch. Still don't have citizens residents patrolling the streets at night. If the cops won't do it why aren't you? You say, "We will when we're a Village" I say, "BULL STINKY. You are a bunch of lazy good for nothings with ideas of patronage running through your skulls."
How may times can we hear "Hours of volunteer work, I deserve SOMETHING" This whole village thing is just pathetic.
You call yourselves Americans? You're nothing but a bunch of socialists with your hands held out. Go to Tibet if you plan to keep collecting alms. Leave America and Mastic Beach to the self sufficient capitalists. We made America great! I'll be damned if I'm going to hand over this hamlet to a bunch of ninnies.
Old and cranky got it right in 2010.

Thoughts on why a mayor/trustee would run for office without pay:

A) they have an ulterior motive which will be revealed at a later date, or

B) they are independently wealthy, which will mean they are out of touch with the common man in Mastic Beach, or

C) they will do it for one term, realize how much work is involved and demand to be payed, or

D) they wont spend any time working as mayor/trustee
Missed the most important one... all of the above.

<quoted text>I believe the other question you had was what is the village going to do, once it cleans up all the problem houses? You were implying the village would then have to resort to petty offenses against the citizens of MB. I truly hope that day comes, and damn fast! Then, we can change the name of the town to UTOPIA. There will be no lacking for work in Mastic Beach...people move in and do illegal alterations, add accessory apartments illegally, raise pit bulls in yards without humane conditions, convert garages to cottages, build second story additions on a house with a 40 foot wide lot without adequate cesspools, rent upstairs and down stairs on high-ranches, have trees growing out of their gutters, have garages that are threatening to collapse from disrepair, have trees growing through their roof.
Come on, why don't you ask the Suffolk County Police what they would do if all criminals stopped committing crimes?
Wow, all of this is still going on in our village, some of it with approval from the village. You are right, it won't stop because the village is powerless to enforce any of the promises that they made. The "vision team" has had a year and they are just messing up and spending like drunks on payday! And I'm tired of the "give them time" line. They have had time to move in the right direction and they are not going that way!

That line keeps coming from "Whoopsing" and "sick of this crap" and all the other yes-men. I don't think ANYONE who is opposed to the Vision Team has EVER said "give them time". Please get informed before typing!

What if the landlords are not really the problem as I see many homeowners with houses in need of repair that cannot afford it and when the car has to come off the road because they cant afford it the code guys will be there to write the tickets ,can we say we own the home and they will leave us alone because we will all vote them out for ticketing the homeowners and not the slumlords
once again! predictions are coming true!

Also, when the first 'slip and fall' lawsuit is filed against the village of Mastic Beach, where will this money come from, volunteers?(you know, because the village will be run by ALL volunteers)
First 'slip and fall' is with a lawyer... bravo MBV Bra-vo.
