More ‘Eye-Sores’ Pointed Out
Do you ever wonder what people think of Pana when they come into Pana from the south? They see an old run down refinery office with knee-high grass.
Do you ever wonder about the tanks in back? Are they empty? Are they still full? Are they leaking into the ground? I sure wonder why something isn’t being done to remove these eye sores.
Why is the old east end grocery store still standing. I see it is roped off – does that mean it poses a danger? If so, why is it still standing? Why is the house next to it still standing?
I’m still wondering. Are you?
We applaud Mrs. Inman’s zeal, but we need to point out, 1) It is our understanding all of the tanks – above and below ground – have been removed from the refinery site. However, a few out-buildings remain. We also find the weeds and dilapidated office a problem; 2) Recently, a Pana city crew eliminated the falling porch at the old grocery store, so the path is now clear. We also understand a bill has been sent to the owner for the work. – T. Latonis.
