Iowa Apartment’s Non-Working Elevator Must Be Replaced

Residents in the Luma Height Apartments in Sioux City, Iowa — some of them senior citizens — are having difficulty getting up and down in the building because its elevator has been broken down for more than five weeks and will take some time before it can be repaired, SIOUXLAND NEWS reported on November 23. The building landlord sent a letter to the tenants a day earlier saying management is aware of the problem. In the meantime, the building’s freight elevator has been opened up to move tenants as a backup plan, but residents have said they don’t find this as the safest option. One resident has an upcoming surgery, and said renters are “paying full rent and we should be able to use the elevator.” Owners have said the elevator will have to be entirely replaced, which will cost an estimated US$200,000. They noted that this will take time to get going.
