Residents See Slow Change at Hammock Oaks
Newberry, FL -- Residents of a North Central Florida apartment complex are dealing with shattered roofs that haven't been fixed for months, driving them out and making room for mold.
Two weeks ago, there were tarps over all the damaged roofs. TV20 visited the complex again Wednesday afternoon and found the scene wasn't very different.
City Commissioner Tim Marden has been working with the management company, Parent Management, to get something done about the roofs for weeks. He said some work has been done, but slow progress is being made. "The brick wall has actually been fixed, so that's good, the apartment three in Building A has been completely gutted, so that should address any of the mold issues, they've also done some work in apartment four with regards to the molding as well," said Marden.
Marden said the company told him work on the roofs should be starting on Wednesday.
Since the original TV20 report, Parent Management has also hired a new on-site manager.
