published July 1, 2001

PINELLAS PARK -- The house at 7050 78th Ave. N is in such bad repair that it's dangerous, City Council said and on Thursday voted to raze the home.

Demolition will not begin immediately, however, because a bank apparently is foreclosing on the property.

The bank could assume ownership and repair the property, so Council members instructed City Manager Jerry Mudd that if the house is not fixed quickly enough, to go ahead and demolish it.

Power failure sends raw sewage into ditch

PINELLAS PARK -- A power failure and a broken backup generator caused about 125,000 gallons of raw sewage to spill into a ditch early Thursday.

Pinellas Park hooked up a portable generator to the system at the sewer lift station at 3960 110th Ave. N in case power goes out again. Pinellas County took samples from the ditch at 43rd Street and 110th Avenue N to determine the level of contamination, if any.

Test results are expected as soon as possible.
