14-29 130th Street in College Point). The company continually uses the residential lot to illegally store commercial vehicles such as gasoline tanks and dump trucks.
As a result, neighboring residents have long endured constant loud noise and unbearable fumes emanating from the location at all hours of the day and night. After addressing this matter with the Department of Buildings (DOB), Senator Avella was informed that the business is in fact, in violation of the zoning code and that this matter was forwarded to the Padlock Unit, which is responsible for padlocking the property.
Unfortunately, the Padlock Unit has been extremely slow in taking action since accepting this case in July 2013. A court date has only just been scheduled for June 4th.
Senator Avella and the local residents will urge DOB to immediately padlock the business.
