Riverhead Restaurant Facing WC Penalties Now in Hands of Bank

 

A Riverhead restaurant that had closed May 14 after receiving a stop-work order from the state Workers’ Compensation Board is now in the hands of the bank that held a $770,000 mortgage on the property, the website riverheadlocal.com reported.

 

Cody’s BBQ & Grill had faced more than $30,000 in penalties for operating without workers’ compensation insurance, according to the Riverhead News-Review newspaper.

 

A spokesman for the WCB told the newspaper the stop-work order had been issued May 12 after an investigator found the restaurant was still operating almost nine months after its workers’ compensation policy was canceled.

 

A spokesperson for Bridgehampton National Bank confirmed to riverheadlocal.com that the bank had taken title to the property.

 

Ray Dickhoff, a local builder, told the website that a BNB official recently told him the bank was interested in selling the Cody BBQ site for $950,000.
