Burned-out building to be razed

In other business Monday, the Lake George Village Board approved a plan to demolish the burned-out shell of the former Mitchell Cohen dental office at 48 Amherst St. Although initially to be accomplished at taxpayer expense, the cost of the contracted demolition work would be recouped through a lien on the property, paid off when the land sells, Blais said. Cohen's lawyer told Blais that Cohen has no money to pay for the demolition - Cohen's insurance company is not paying for the fire claim, Blais said. He added the building needed to be razed, as vagrants have been seen occupying and exiting the building.
