Alteri's to rebuild after Valentine's fire

Because of the case, the Town Board voted unanimously in early June to amend the fees portion of Section 128 of the Bethlehem zoning code and reduce its maximum penalty from six months in jail to 15 days in jail and/or a $350 fine per violation.

The reason the town decided to change the code, according to Town Attorney James Potter, is because Quinn's trial brought the stiff penalty to light.

Quinn said he wants to stay and continue the 40-year community business that he bought in 2001.

"We'll be back and have a nice restaurant for people to go to," he said. "We love the people here and hope to be back as soon as possible."
