East Hampton Homeowner Thumbs Her Nose At Permits

New, 5 comments

When we last checked in with Molly Zweig, she had been given "an invitation to court" by East Hampton Village code enforcement officer Tom Lawrence for her decision to claim the beach near her home by erecting two dozen poles in preparation for a permanent fence. What's she been up to since then?

Well, her October court date was rescheduled for her failure to appear. She did send a representative, but because the charges are criminal, she will need to show up in person. Additionally, she doubled down on her beach construction and recently installed a tall pole topped with a surveillance camera. Mr. Lawrence is currently looking into possible additional charges for this new structure. The law is pretty black and white when it comes to this issue, he says, "No structures on the beach."
