There's a new law up for debate in Sag Harbor that would allow residents to gain legal recognition for their accessory apartments. The law would apply to those apartments in a property's barns, sheds (sheds, really?), or other auxiliary structures that fall between 300 and 800-square-feet. Some officials tout the law as a way to govern otherwise illegal apartments with more strict zoning laws. And those residents who are tired of breaking the law every time they collect rent obviously support it. So who's really against it? We think it's just those jealous types who don't have income-producing apartments on their property. Would you really complain if you had a couple of grand coming in every month?
