lol Looks like they might want to move back in after the city builds them a new one.
Hopefully it's not wrapped up in taxes & the property owners get the new appraised value for it lol.
Been some good ones in this city,where the city had to re appraise & buy peoples property's because of various constructions projects & the now vacant lots cost the city 3 times the market rate lol.
My former property had the nicest,widest new,TAX FREE LOL,street on this end of the city because of mistakes the water dept. made & sub contractors MAKING A FEW "SIMPLE" main line repairs,turned into a 2 yr. job,replaced ALL the main & secondary lines,had to buy the frontage on all property's and totally replace the street lol. got to love to many minds at work.

The house must have looked pretty desheveled for them to think it was the proper house to demolish. Of well, someone just got a new house for nothing!!!!

It all goes down to check double check and check again. They need to use their brains a little more. Just a little common sense. I see it all the time and everywhere....... all I can say is are you kidding me?

If the address was 127 S. Main Street and they knocked down 125 S. Main Street.........don't you think someone on the crew would have said hey this house in the middle is 126 and we need 127 don't we need to knock down the house on the other side?

Think about it........

It's not just a simple mistake like hey I used blue ink when I should have used black.

There were to many things they should have been looking at to tell them they were at the wrong property.

Just my opinion that's all!

Oh wait that's not right on my example 126 is an even it would have been on the other side of the street. I think I need more coffee!

But still somewhere in the process they should have caught the mistake. Like when hey tagged the home or when they went out to mark the utilities or got the permits.
