Clock Is Ticking for One Lubbock Homeowner

A Lubbock man is in jeopardy of losing his home if he can not meet city code soon.

In June, the city ordered Carl Bagwell to clean-up his Tech Terrace home. He has gotten most of the job done, but Bagwell is still living without gas, water, and sewer. The city says the structure is in violation of a Structural Standards Commission Order.

If Bagwell can not prove he is making adequate progress, the city says it has no other choice but to tear his house down. "It's the last thing the city wants to do is demolish the structure. But these structures were to be held to a certain standard," said Rob Allison, Neighborhood Development Manager for the City of Lubbock.

Allison says the city has given Bagwell ample time to get in compliance and has even offered Bagwell grants to pay for water and sewer lines. Bagwell refused the offer saying he would get the job done himself, in another four months time.

Bagwell is scheduled to give the city council a progress report on Thursday.
