City code officer slays Snowzilla

Giant snowman deemed a public nuisance, safety hazard. Anchorage's famous giant snow man, Snowzilla, finally met its match.
It wasn't the weather. It wasn't angry neighbors bearing shovels and pick axes.
It turns out Snowzilla's biggest foe -- the one who felled the controversial but much-loved giant -- was notice by the city code enforcement officer.
That's right, Snowzilla was abated.
It was just a few years ago that 16-foot-tall Snowzilla arose in a residential yard in Airport Heights, launching an annual of local and international media blitz.
Billy Powers, posing with his 16-foot snowman, was served a cease-and-desist order. Under the city’s nuisance abatement order, if he tries tobuild another snowman, he could get arrested.
