Mold Issues Linger at Horizon House Apartments
Published January 28th, 2014
GAINESVILLE- Black mold problems appear to be getting worse after one Horizon House resident remans hospitalized tonight with respiratory problems.
One woman is in the hospital suffering from respiratory problems that doctors say stem from black mold.
It's been 3 weeks since a formal complaint was filed with apartment management about the problem, but residents we talked to say they've been dealing with the problem for much longer than that.
Displaced families call the apartments unfit to live in --meanwhile they are looking for a safe place to call home. So far they haven't found it.
Horizon House Resident Walette Mulberry, "I can't even give them an answer so it's hard not being able to explain to them why they can't go home."
The mold issue was brought to attention of the City Commission who notified City Code Enforcement.
But according to City Representative, Bob Woods, they did not open a file on the case, because they were told management would deal the issue.
