To the Times of Ti:
Port Henry needs an occupancy law like a hole in the head. I have lived in Port Henry over 70 years and we didn’t need an occupancy certificate. It’s another money grab by the village.
If this continues more taxpayers will move out of the village and the only occupants will be welfare recipients, which is pretty much the trend anyway. Their occupancy certificate will be paid by the slum lords who will be reimbursed by social services at the taxpayers’ expense.
Keep up the good work Port Henry. All that will be left is storefronts with painted window and scarecrows to grace their streets.
