Written by David Schaef

Linesville Borough Council spent the first hour of its November meeting last week in discussion on the tearing down of the Pachuk Building located in downtown Linesville and on the condition of a home on East Erie Street.

Two residents near the East Erie Street Lasko home complained of lack of lawn mowing and garbage being around. Another complaint was shingles coming off the house roof and going into the neighbor’s yard.

It was said the water has been turned off in the house with questions raised as to whether anyone was living there.
