Oneonta Hotel court case decision

Otsego County Supreme Court Judge John Lambert rendered a decision between The City of Oneonta, and the Owners of the Oneonta Hotel.

Posted: Sep 7, 2018 6:15 PM

An ongoing dispute between the City of Oneonta and the owners of the Oneonta Hotel is being settled in court. Otsego County Supreme Court Judge John Lambert has given the City until October 1st to compile a complete list of violations to be submitted to the Hotel Owners. The Pervu’s who own the Hotel have until October 15th to get in an application for a building permit to repair the violations. It may sound like it’s no big deal, but City Attorney David Merzig elaborated.

(Q: Do you know how many codes violations she’s looking at at this point?) "Oh, that would be impossible for me to calculate, but there are hundreds."


Hundreds of codes violations is what the Pervu’s have been arguing over. They claim every time they fix violations, the City generates new ones, and that City Officials are corrupt. The City Attorney explained how the allegations corruption are now in the hands of the court.

"Now we will have oversight from a Supreme Court Judge to make a determination as to whether those allegations are correct or not. He’s going to be overseeing whether the work that’s done was appropriate or not, so we’ll have an objective determination of that fact. Obviously that is not the case."


The court will issue an order to vacate if the Pervu’s aren’t in compliance. We did attempt to talk to the defendant’s in this case, but were told by their Attorney no comment. If all the codes violations aren’t fixed by January 11, 2019, the Pervu’s are going to be back in court to answer to Judge Lambert and face possible contempt charges.
