Despite the objection of petitioner’s regarding a shed permit for a neighbor, the appellate court noted that the neighbors had constructive notice as early as 2009 that the shed owners had been issued a permit to replace the shed in their backyard. Village Law sec. 7-712a[b] requires that appeals of this nature be commenced within 60 days of receiving constructive notice, yet the petitioners’ waiting until 2012.
Second, with respect to allegations that the Board violated the Open Meetings Law, the court noted that even if true,”not every breach of the [Open Meetings Law] automatically triggers its enforcement sanctions.”
