The town on Dec. 11 issued an after-the-fact permit for an $8,500 job at 5 Cecil Place. The work was done by the homeowner and covered a full bathroom installation “in the already finished basement,” the permit said. “Kindly note that all the above work was done without obtaining the necessary permits,” the permit said. “This means that all required inspections during construction were not performed.”
A wreath appeared briefly last weekend on the long-vacant Richmond Hill Road building known as the “Mead Park Brick Barn.” Those seeking permission to restore and reuse the building recently asked town officials to remove a “Notice of Demolition” sign from it, and to allow them to place a wreath on it.
