Apartment Complex Still Without A/C

You may remember last week we reported one local apartment without air conditioning; they are now in their second week.

Some residents at Tropicana Apartments in Longview are staying with relatives, or have checked into motels because of the unbearable heat.

We spoke with the apartment manager today and he says the hold-up has been getting parts for their A/C unit, which is almost 15 years old. 

Tropicana Apartments Manager Dave Chessey says, "We're doing everything we can to get this unit up and going.  Last time this happened by the previous owners it took a month to get that going so right now it's been one week as of today."

Dave Chessey says, right now, he doesn't plan on subracting anything from the tenants' rent, but he has talked to one couple about paying some of their hotel bill.  He says the A/C unit should be fixed by tomorrow at the latest.
