The owner of the former Hollyrock building in Utica that was torn down earlier this year has pleaded guilty to several codes violations, according to Utica City Court officials.

In Utica City Court on Monday, Steven Mancuso pleaded guilty to violating the property code regarding the presence of rubbish and garbage, the city code for failure to get a permit, and the violation of failure to get a certificate of appropriateness.

Mancuso tore down the former Hollyrock building, located at 632 Varick Street, at the end of March.

Mancuso received a letter from the City of Utica dated March 7 informing him that the building needed to be torn down as soon as possible. He then received another letter dated March 14 that he said needed to get permission by the Preservation Commission before he could demolish it, but Mancuso said he didn’t receive that letter until March 28

After pleading guilty to the violations, Mancuso was sentenced to a $1,000 fine and one year of conditional discharge.
