July 21, 2011

BIG RUN — Big Run Borough Council passed a motion Monday to have the fire-ravaged Big Run Carpet building torn down within the next 60 days.

Council member John Niver said council needed a time frame, and that he consulted with Mary McHenry, the code enforcement officer for the Borough of Punxsutawney, as to how much time a property owner has to remove a fire-damaged structure in Punxsy.

Punxsutawney gives a property owner 90 days to either remove or repair a fire-damaged structure, Niver said.
