Barry Yonney, of the 1200 block of Second Avenue, told Hellertown Borough Council Sept. 4 that a home across the street from his is currently an eyesore.
On Sept. 4, a resident of Second Avenue asked members of Hellertown Borough Council and borough staff if anything can be done about a property across the street from his home. Barry Yonney, of 1226 Second Ave., said the poor condition of the property at 1231 Second Ave. is causing his home's value to depreciate. Northampton County property records indicate the property is owned by Rosario Velas, and a public online database indicates that it is the home of Michele I. and Gwen P.

"I have had it. That is totally laziness, what they're doing there." …
