Pet Hoarder Seeks Town OK For 6 Dogs


http://www.papillonpalsrescue.com/images/a-lot-of-dogs.jpg

Applicant: Elizabeth LaBeef Cardella

Location: 290 Stonewood Avenue

Mon. Co. Tax No.: 060.58-4-27

Zoning District: R1-E (Single-Family Residential)

Request: An area variance to allow six (6) dogs to be kept at a residence where not more than three (3) dogs shall be permitted per dwelling unit. Sec. 211-30 A
  
SCATS ~~ The barking & poop produced by SIX dogs is too much for the average Greece lot where you are already close to your neighbors.

Not in that neighborhood anymore

That woman is not the owner of that house. A man named Giuseppe Cardella is the owner of that and lives there and owns many other properties. It shows up as having by another business because of "delinquent taxes". Their delinquent taxes have been sold. Public info on the county tax site. Maybe they should pay their taxes instead of feeding and taking care of 6 dogs. She may live there and may be related but he is the owner and must be the applicant according to the town code. Why does the town take pity on people that don't need pity since they own many other properties. They should not allow an exception to the rules about ownership and applicants as well as allowing an animal hoarding situation.

The husband's brother is a sheriff. Expect this to be approved on that basis.

Is it just me or does anyone else suspect that these appeals to the zoning board come after there complaints? In other words, don't these people just bring in the extra animals and only seek an ok when the neighbors turn them in? In my opinion, the answer should be an emphatic no when the person didn't seek approval prior to obtaining the pets. Just my 2 cents.

She also owns Loop's bar or Kitchen in the city. And yes her husband 's brother is cop. But the property is owned by this other person Giuseppi or sometimes known as Joseph. He needs to request the variance. Since this lady looks like she is 46 look at the front of the house. Is she also doing child care or are those toys for the 6 dogs. It must be fun to live around that place as a neighbor.

12:35 you are right! Of course they only come after the applicant already has the animals. Let's consider the alternative (completely implausible) Liz and Ipp are sitting at the table having coffee and petting their 3 dogs. Liz says..."Oh Ippy, I really cahn't stahnd just having 3 dogs. Let us go to the town and apply to have 3 more dogs. I am sure they will allow us to, even though we don't own this house and the owner hasn't paid his taxes and it is in what is called tax foreclosure. Let's apply now so we can have an even half dozen dogs and life will be complete". This is not the story I suspect. Rather it is they already have the 6 or more dogs and someone had the courage to complain. So Ip calls his brother the sheriff employee and is assured there will be no problem. Pino says " Fugeddaboutit. It's Greece and the boys in blue always get their way. Just go through the motions of applying. Even if you have more than 6 dogs they will never see all of them at once. And they can't do a search of your premises without a warrant. You're golden."
Let's see how this unfolds. Next episode at the Greece hearing.

To 12:35AM ~~ I agree, too.

To 9:55AM ~~ Your example sounds all too realistic :( UGH.

9:55- What if Liz is a renter? Who gets the permission then? The dog owner? The home owner? Both?? Lots of renters in Greece these days

There are and always be a few boys in blue who won't hesitate to shoot... Man or beast! Beware!

Of course this is only my opinion, but, six dogs living in a home in that area would be a vast improvement.

The property owner has to make the request for the variance. And they would be either approved for the variance or denied. It would be a use variance that would end at the time new people if any bought the property. This is residential.It is not like a restaurant asking for a use permit at a location they don't own but lease.
Neither the applicant nor her husband own the property. And it is a strange looking messy property with a large pavilion tent set up outside. That looks permanently there, not just for a party since there is a lot of clutter inside that tent. Once a building inspector goes to the property to check there will be other violations than just the dogs. They were probably cited for other violations of the code and were told as part of remediation that the dogs had to go and they are petitioning to keep 6 dogs. Wonder how many animals were there before they were cited.

Sit in your basket and stay out of this one SCATS.
You're clearly Puuurrrjudice against dogs.

To 12:06AM ~~ Actually, I love animals. I'm not enamored with irresponsible neighbors though.

i don't know, I think I may prefer a house with 6 dogs over a house with 6 people.

Greece Animal Control is a joke. They refuse to do anything about out of control barking dogs. These annoying dogs start barking at the crack if dawn. The owner is a retired sheriff. Need I say more?

SCATS said...

To 11:10AM ~~ I get your drift.

To 12:20PM ~~ YOU CAN SAY THAT AGAIN!! They are a bunch of mamby pamby types who worry way too much about making waves, over doing their job.

ALL Greece Code Enforcment is a JOKE.

Do as you damn well please, and there is a good chance you'll get away with it.

Just look at the mower place on Kuhn Rd. No permits pulled for anything, and absolutely no code compliance.
Been called in numerous times too.

Building owner lives in Henrietta, but he knows who to pay off.

SCATS said...

To 2PM ~~ You can say that again! But on the other side, IF YOU pay for a permit, no inspection is ever done! It's just $$ p*ssed away.

SCATS your 2:02 comment is untrue! A few years back i got my kids one of those set it up yourself pools, not knowing u needed a permit for one. Sure enough we came home from vaca to find a note on our door from code enforcement saying we needed a permit. We went to the town hall to get a permit and had to jump through lots of hoops, had 3 different inspectors come out, and ended up paying over $1000 to keep a pool we take down every fall. $450 to have a plug in poll put in, $225 to have a tree trimed, $300 for a pool alarm, even tho our yard is fenced in, not to mention, the cost of moving it, buying dirt and refilling it. So someone was doing their job!!

To 2:15PM ~~ Maybe I should have specified that IF YOU GET CAUGHT without the permit, they will put you through the paces. I've gotten permits BEFORE doing work ... NOTHING happened. Same with several friends & neighbors.

Since you returned home to fine code enforcement had visited, it sounds like one of your neighbors complained to get things rolling.
