The Porter Senior Apartments do currently have heat and water. Shortly after the story was aired yesterday, the water leak in the basement was fixed, but tenants still want an explanation.
Renters were calling the complex unlivable when they were left with no heat or water due to the basement leak, but they say this is just a few things on the long list of issues they deal with daily at Porter Apartments.
6 News visited the apartments yesterday and today to try to get a word from on site management, but was denied and told to go through corporate to get a comment. After speaking with the Executive Vice President from corporate, they said they have no comment. City Code Enforcement said in a statement that they are taking the situation and complaints seriously.
Renters say that they are happy the water and heat are back on but these are simple amenities that no one should ever be without.
We will keep you updated on this story and inform you of any updates from corporate or the city.
