WATERBURY, CT-19 December 2013-121913LW02 - Lt. Daniel Lauer, director of Waterbury's Blight Task Force, right, and Michael Gilmore, the task force's deputy director, inspect a blighted property at 197 Willow St. in Waterbury. The home is next on the city's lilst for demolition and should be gone in about six weeks, Lauer said. It burned a year and a half ago and the owner walked away after realizing his insurance had lapsed and he didn't have the money to fix it, Lauer said. The city tried to sell it at a tax auction, but there were no takers.
