City staff to meet with Woodridge Apartment representatives

Posted: Updated:

It's been more than four months since a balcony at the Woodridge Apartments collapsed. The fines imposed by the city have been accruing without repairs and Wednesday night city staff will address the issue once again.

Code Compliance is expected to have an update on any progress at the Woodridge Apartments. But it's not the only substandard properties they'll be discussing.

In May the balcony came tumbling just hours after residents were evacuated due to structural issues in the building.

Overall Code Compliance identified 706 violations at Woodridge and while some minor repairs have been made the property has still not made all the repairs they were given 75 days to complete.

They have been accruing penalties fees upwards of $60,000 so far and they have yet to pay any of those fines.

There are also new cases that have popped up at other properties which are being presented at the meeting. Code Compliance says although they can't give out the details prior to the meeting that most of them are owners are in not in compliance with structural or zoning issues.

The commission will hear from Woodridge representatives and are also expected to hear from Woodridge residents who still live at the property.

The meeting is set for 6:30 p.m. at City Hall.
