The cemetery association had planned to tear down boarded-up building but delayed those plans to see if Gary Streiner can come up with the money.
Cemetery association President Ron Volz tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the building will have to come down if the fundraising effort falls short. Streiner has raised about $7,000 so far.Story: Why don't zombies ever die? Because we love 'em
