Mancuso pleads in Utica building demolition case

UTICA — A Utica man accused by the city of tearing down a building in a historic district pleaded guilty to three violations Monday in Utica City Codes Court, his attorney John Raspante said Tuesday.

In March, Steven Mancuso was ticketed for a violation of the international property code regarding the presence of rubbish and garbage; a violation of the city code for failure to get a permit; failure to get a certificate of appropriateness (relative to the plan involving actions performed with a structure in a historic section), a city code violation.

All charges were in connection to the demolition of an 1840s-era Greek Revival building he owned at 632 Varick St. without a permit or consent from the city.

Mancuso’s sentence for the three code violations was $1,000 in fines and a one-year conditional discharge.
