The trial of two former Spring Valley Building Department officials connected to a deadly fire has been put off until next year.
The 2021 fire at the Evergreen Court Home for Adults killed firefighter Jared Lloyd and a building resident.
Building Department Chief Wayne Ballard and Assistant Building Inspector Raymond Canario are both charged with filing false inspection reports.
The trial was scheduled to begin next Tuesday in Rockland County Court. The reason for the delay has been cited as the unavailability of attorneys.
Hearings are still continuing for the father and son rabbis, who are accused of causing the fire while torch-cleaning ovens for Passover.
