The Town Board last week voted to approve legal against several blighted houses.
On the list of properties in violation of town code were:
24 Alyssum Ave., Huntington
199 Seaman Neck Road, Dix Hills
138 Wyman Ave., Huntington Station
17 Armell St., Huntington Station
502 10th Ave., East Northport
The action comes out of legislation passed in 2011.
The legislation includes a 25 percent reduction of certain fees to buyers of property registered on the town's blighted property list and the creation of a list of blight conditions with a specific point value attached to each.
Blight property list conditions include past summonses, illegal activity, fire hazards, boarded windows and entranceways, and graffiti, according to a release from the town.
Once a property earns a blight point value of 100 or more, the property owner will face a $5,000 fee for commercial property and $2,500 for residential property. The property will then be placed on the town's blight list.
