Tim Saunders and his companion, Sherry Way, share a laugh in front of his property on Flamingo Road. The city has finished reconstructing the hillside, leaving a steep slope on which to rebuild his house. A 5-foot strip that parallels the road is the only level piece of the property. Saunders, 66. the retired owner of a pest control company, had lived on Flamingo Road for about nine years when the slide claimed his two-story house. He said it slid down the hill “like a ship leaving a dock.” He plans to rebuild using his retirement fund, but says it was not an easy choice.
