Sewage Damaged Home Demolished by City

A crane tore down a house at Oak Point Road yesterday that has been the subject of friction between the city and disgruntled residents for nearly five years.

Don Buchs, president of All American Corp. and operator of the crane, said this is the first of a few more homes that will be demolished due to the damage done when a sewer line broke on Nov. 30, 2006. The line broke because of a heavy rain storm and raw sewage flooded into homes. Buchs said there are plans to demolish the house across the street in the near future.

The city became the owners of the Oak Point property that belonged to Charles and Mary Williams as part of a settlement to a lawsuit that the couple filed. The city and two other defendants awarded the couple in excess of $700,000, said Andy Goldwasser, the Williams’ attorney. The family also sued for wrongful death of Mary Williams’ mother, Dorothy Dulick, who was living with the couple at the time. She was diagnosed with pneumonia as a result of fumes from the sewage and died in 2009, according to previous news stories.
