Council votes to tear down Pachuk building Print E-mail

Acting at a special meeting on Tuesday, April 7, Linesville borough council members voted 5-2 to have the Pachuk Building in downtown Linesville demolished.

The special meeting lasted about 70 minutes, kicked off by borough council president Mike Heaney saying the meeting would be run with more order than the one last week and that only new information would be considered. Persons addressing council would be limited to 5 minutes. He asked speakers to be respectful and he noted council would be given a chance to speak.

He opened the meeting having the borough’s property coordinator speak first, that being councilman Rodney Kovisto, who said he would be short and concise.

He said that after “touring the building with our engineer”, and noting the man interested in taking over the building was now asking for 180 days to repair, noting a further collapse could take place at any time, there was a need to put the matter to bed.

Councilwoman Laura Deal said after looking at the report from the council’s engineer, that it was not prudent to repair the building...a hazard to the community.

The Pachuk Building in downtown Linesville was to have been torn down on Monday, March 30, but that did not happen when all necessary permits were not in place and the demolition was delayed.

A permit from the Department of Environmental Protection had not been approved, thus the no go on the tear down.

Linesville Borough Council met in work session on Tuesday, March 31, in session lasting nearly 3-1/2 hours long to discuss the situation that now has someone offering to renovate the building if owner David Pachuk will sign over the titles to him, this person also offering to pay the back taxes and sewage liens that are outstanding.

This so-called white knight, stepping up at the 11th hour, is a dual citizen with citizenship in America and Canada, whose ties the Crawford County area is the man is a graduate of Allegheny College in Meadville some years ago, has taken other renovation projects under hand, reportedly 15 or so elsewhere, but also including a work in progress in Meadville - the former Huidekoper Mansion.
