The former Boston Hotel in the Town of Boston was severely damaged during a fire in January 2009.
A decision about a fire-damaged restaurant in the town of Boston has been placed on hold.
The Town Board tabled a vote on demolishing the former Boston Hotel at 9378 Boston State Road on Wednesday night, Sept. 15.
Officials offered few comments about the building afterward. Supervisor Martin Ballowe said the property's owners, Lisa and William Dellamore, had not called or visited his office since Sept. 1, when the Town Board issued a Sept. 15 deadline for demolition proceedings to begin.
To delay the deadline, the Dellamores may file a stay, a legal document that would give them more time to repair or raze the structure.
No legal documents had been filed at the town clerk's office as of Wednesday night, said Town Clerk David Shenk. The document could also be served to the town attorney, supervisor's office or board members' homes.
Michael Kobiolka, town attorney, would not comment about the property. Ballowe also declined to answer questions about the process or whether documents had been filed.
Neither Kobiolka nor Ballowe would say whether they discussed the matter with the Dellamores or their attorney.
Lisa Dellamore would not comment or reveal her attorney's name when called at her home Friday, Sept. 10. She did not return a telephone message Monday, Sept. 13.
The Dellamores have not attended a Town Board meeting since July 7, when they accused officials of reducing business at their restaurant across the street, the Boston Hotel East, by enacting parking restrictions on Short and Boston Cross roads.
Formerly Amore's restaurant, the Boston Hotel East at 9373 Boston State Road sits near Short Road. The Dellamores renamed the business after the fire decimated the Boston Hotel on Jan. 28, 2009.
The board may revisit the issue during its next meeting at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6.
