After Contact 9 report, elevator at senior apartment complex fixed
PORT ALLEN, La. (WAFB) - The people living at a retirement community in Port Allen are feeling relief.
The elevator at the Allen Court apartments is finally fixed after two months. The repair comes after a Contact 9 report about the challenges neighbors faced without it.
Hearing the ding from the elevator is music to the ears of those living at the complex.
“It’s a wonderful feeling. Yes indeed because we went through the ringer without it,” said Linda Borris.
Neighbors were forced to use the stairs for two months. That made it hard for them to do everyday chores including laundry.
The property manager says lightning hit the building back on March 27th.
Now, that problem is solved.
Neighbors can now use the elevator to take their groceries upstairs.
“I was disappointed because every time they came it was one thing or another until y’all came in and put a little reinforcement,” said Wanda Morgan.
