Glen Springs Manor
"i knew it was bad, but not that bad."
Twenty seven year old Jennifer Marsh says she wasn't surprised when TV 20 told her today that Hud was taking away funding from her apartment complex in Northwest Gainesville. But Marsh and other residents at Glen Springs Manor say they wish they had found this out before now.
"they never really let you know what's going on there," says Samantha Bass a resident of Glen Springs Manor.
But what they do say they know is that the living conditions at Glen Springs Manor are far from sanitary. In an inspection back in November Hud gave the complex a score of thirty nine out o fa possible one hundred points. They said "there was failure to maintain the project in decent safe, and sanitary conditions."
"It took them months to fix my tub. I had to go to St. Augustine to live with my brother, come back home and it still wasn't working," says Jennifer Marsh.
"I've witnessed and seen some of the problems people have had in their homes," says Monica Underwood a resident of Glen Springs Manor.
Problems residents say have been there since we showed you conditions there in 2007. Residents say better managers would have solved the problems. The people in charge of the complex refused to comment to TV 20.
"Why can't they get it done, it's like what's the problem," says Samantha Bass.
Monica Underwood has lived at Glen Springs Manor for four years and she says the management has changed a lot. Others say they are short staffed.
"Not enough maintenance people, they got one guy doing everything by himself," says Jennifer Marsh.
Residents say they understand why Hud is suspending the money it sends to glen springs. For now, it will send vouchers straight to qualified residents.
"I hope they give us something better, that would be nice. but i doubt it. The government just doesn't care about people like us," says Jennifer Marsh.
"as long as i know that we have somewhere to go, i'm fine with that," says Samantha Bass.
A question they will have until they get a letter in the mail from Hud. A representative for Hud tells TV 20 that Glen Springs actually failed two inspections and the owners didn't make changes recommended by Hud.
