AVON —The Avon Village Board announced Monday a demolition date for Dennis Catuzza’s house.
After several complaints from nearby residents made to the Village Board earlier this year, a demolition date has been set for the house of one Dennis Catuzza for September 16.
“I think that the neighbors thought this was going to be easier than it ended up being,” said Tony Capello, Code Enforcement Officer for the Village of Avon.
Ron’s Contracting is set to demolish Catuzza’s house September 16 and is estimating anywhere between ten days to three weeks to complete the project entirely.
“We did everything we could for Dennis Catuzza,” said Mayor Tom Freeman.
According to Capello, Catuzza’s house contains asbestos and lead however there is not enough to affect the surrounding neighbors and areas.
“I spoke to Catuzza on Saturday and he explained that he has no plans to fight the Village of Avon on the demolition of his house,” said Capello.
There are a couple of options for the future of the lot once the house has been demolished, the surrounding neighbors have the option to purchase the land, or a new house can be built in it’s place.
According to Gary Benedict, Chief of Police for the Village of Avon, there are no anticipated issues with traffic in the area.
