Snow, winds collapse 22 county structures

Heavy snow, coupled with occasional high winds, have collapsed a total of 17 structures that were in use in the town and five vacant structures in the county, according to a report given to Pulaski Town Council Tuesday.
Although the town currently has a list of condemned structures it is trying to have removed, Town Manager John Hawley said the snow “unfortunately” isn’t “bringing down the ones we wanted down.”
The report, from Fire Marshal Chip Hutchinson, notes that the collapsed structures referred to in the report are merely the collapses that were reported to the town or county. “There may be some that have not been reported,” he added.
The value of the losses has not been determined as of yet.
The “operational” structures damaged by the snow included nine commercial, one residential, three garages, two carports and two outbuildings. The vacant structures in the county included two commercial and three residential.
Two of the first collapses to be reported were a Conny Oil warehouse and the former Tim & Eddies or Dew Drop Inn in downtown.
Hawley said Conny Oil is having the warehouse removed, but there is still questions as to whether the town will have to remove the other building.
This past year the town had 13 condemned structures removed at a cost of $60,000-$70,000, with liens placed on the properties in an effort to recover the costs.
