SALEM — The Zoning Board of Adjustment tabled a Martin Avenue family’s request for another extension to allow them to live in a mobile home outside their oil-contaminated residence.
The board last week requested additional information from Suzanne Demers on the renovations planned at her home at 21 Martin Ave. and when the work would be complete, town planning director Ross Moldoff said. The matter will be reviewed at the board’s next meeting July 2, he said.
Demers requested a variance so she and her family can live in the mobile home for nine more months.
They already received five extensions and have lived in the mobile home for four years after more than 230 gallons of heating oil flooded the basement of their house in February 2007.
Demers and her son, Michael Demers, have claimed an employee from Haffner’s fuel company overfilled their tank. Haffner’s claimed the home had a faulty tank and piping. A Superior Court jury cleared the Lawrence company following a trial in 2011.
