Former Poli restaurant in Squirrel Hill scheduled for sheriff sale
Poli's Restaurant, a fixture in Pittsburgh's Squirrel Hill area since 1921 but which has been closed since 2005, has been listed for the Allegheny County Sheriff Sale in September for non-payment of county real estate taxes.
The county took action to collect $33,828.21 in taxes owed, plus other costs, totaling $44,331.68 owed on the restaurant at 2607 Murray Ave. Named in the action is Lisa M. Firman, executrix of the estate of Dolores M. Poli.
The county also seeks $1,826.40, owned by Poli's Restaurants Inc., for $362.53 in back taxes plus other fees.
The two-story restaurant closed during a legal dispute among members of the Poli family.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
