Glen Springs Manor Apartments Out of Gas
Residents of a northwest Gainesville apartment complex continue to live without hot water or working stoves. Until the pipes are repaired, Gainesville Regional Utility representatives say the natural gas service will not be turned back on. Residents of building D at Glen Springs Manor Apartment say the past week has been inconvenient and costly. Many are saying their patience is running out as management is unable to provide them with a time line, but they don't know what else they can do but wait for help.
Since the gas has been off the residents have been making other arrangements to take care of their families. One resident's mother lives in a nearby building, so she has been taking her children there. "So that's what we have been doing, go to our people's houses and using their water to bathe and using their gas to cook and feed my kids."
Jasmine Wright says it's been a hard week because her children don't understand why they are going to their grandmother's house everyday to eat and bathe. Maintenance was on the property working to fix the pipes on Thursday. Signs placed on doors Wednesday suggested the problem would be fixed by Thursday, but the residents haven't been given any guarantees. Thursday calls from TV 20 to management were not answered, and the office doors were locked after the time the sign on the door said they would reopen. TV 20's contributing reporter Brittany Scheck has the story.
