A Mastic Beach father and son face nearly $20,000 in fines after code enforcement officials removed about 85,000 pounds of debris from the dad's property, officials said.

John W. Mallgren, owner of 57 Daisy Dr., and his son, John R. Mallgren, a tenant there, allowed 42 tons of tires, car parts, hoses and other trash to pile up on the residential lot, which is also the site of a single-family home, Brookhaven Town officials said.

The elder Mallgren must pay $8,742 for the removal of the rubbish - which required 10 garbage trucks - and his son likely will face more than $10,000 in fines, officials said.

The building was condemned on June 24, and the younger Mallgren's case is winding its way through the court system, officials said.

So whats the problem? I did not see edible garbage lying around drawing rats and critters. Looks like someone has issues with the way they use the property. Must be kool aid drinkers on a binge.

To Jap69, Homes that are unkept lowers the value of adjacent homes. Not only visually but other ways too. Just like my ex-boss's home. His property value dropped like a rock when his neighbor across the street lost her house because of a divorce. The exact type of house. His initial profit margin he depended on vanished. He eventually settled with the bank buying it back from him with about 10% of what he thought the profit would be.
