Clintons Renovating New House Without Permits

CHAPPAQUA, N.Y. (AP) -

Bill and Hillary Clinton have been renovating a house they bought next to their suburban New York home without obtaining several required permits, the Journal News reports.

The Clintons purchased the house in Chappaqua for $1.16 million in August. Town building-department records show that a swimming pool at the house has been filled in, the kitchen has been renovated and new lighting has been installed, all without permits.

The newspaper says a building inspector visited the house Oct. 5 after his department received a complaint.

The Journal News obtained the building-department records through a state Freedom of Information Law request. A Clinton representative did not return requests for comment.
