Frustrated Residents Seek Roof Repairs
Published August 6th, 2014
Newberry, FL -- Some frustrated residents in one North Central Florida apartment complex are saying they don't know where else to turn for help.
On a stormy night in June, Suzanne Huertas was just getting home from work when she heard a loud boom. The next thing she knew, there was a tree on top of her apartment at Hammock Oaks Apartment Complex in Newberry and three other units in the same complex. Two units have minimal damage, while she and another resident were forced to vacate their apartments.
That was two months ago and residents say they haven't seen any improvements to the roofs.
Huertas turned to Newberry City Commissioner Tim Marden, who's been communicating with the management company, Parent Management and Realty.
According to Marden, "the management company has assured [him] as late as this past friday that they would get those things done by August 15th and that was kind of an arbitrary date that [he] felt was sufficient for them to be able to get the work done that needs to be done over there."
August 15th is in no way an official date from the City of Newberry.
TV20 reached out to Parent Management and was transferred to the contractor, TRW & Associates, who said the hold up is due to the engineers and insurance company not complying with each other, and TRW is working on fixing the damaged roofs.
