Vacant Buildings

The Town of Brunswick has passed new legislation (Local Law No.1 of the year 2019) to more effectively deal with vacant buildings and the problems that vacant buildings present. As a result of this legislation, anyone who owns a vacant building (in the Town of Brunswick) must REGISTER their vacant building.
