FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) - There's one elevator running right now, but for how long? That's what some residents are asking at Three Rivers Apartments.
"The elevators will routinely go down for an entire weekend at a time or they will have one out of three working," Erica Smith said.
When Saturday came around, Smith said so did the hassle of getting to and from apartments. For she and her husband, there's added struggle.
"My husband is recovering from a broken foot and he's not able to climb up and down twelve flights of stairs every time he gets off from work," Smith added.
When she asked Three Rivers Apartment's management about repairs she said she was told they would have to wait for the fix.
She and other residents had to rough it out over the weekend until Monday and even now she said only one elevator is working.
Smith wants them replaced.
"They've been telling us for well over a year now, my husband lived in the other building before we moved in this building together, and they've been telling him for well over a year and other residents as well," she explained.
She said she's not only thinking about her situation but her elderly neighbors.
She expressed major disappointment for the lack of urgency to fix them over the weekend.
Monday, residents got notice of plans to replace elevators, but Smith is taking it with a grain of salt.
