A stop work order has been issued by the Town of Smithtown at the former home of on West Main Street, the soon-to-be home of Nino's Delicatessen.
The stop work order, according to deli owner Anthony Garofalo, is only for work done on the building's exterior because of a variance needed to install a window.
"[Work was stopped] only on the outside because I need a variance for a window. I'm trying to put a side window up on the side of the building and it didn't get approved yet. I thought it did," he said.
Garofalo said he would meet with the state code official and the work stoppage could be rectified as soon as Thursday.
If the installation of the window does not get approved Garofalo said he will remove the window's installation from his permit so he could continue to work on the exterior of the building.
