UPDATE: A public hearing scheduled for Thursday was delayed after attorneys for the apartment complex were granted more time.


A public hearing is scheduled Thursday concerning the living conditions at an apartment complex in Stuart.  

Residents living at the Astorwood Apartments hope to get some answers about what they call poor living conditions.  This comes after the city said units at the complex were too dangerous to live in.

Thursday's hearing will allow code enforcement and property managers to give their side of the story.

Just weeks ago, city code enforcement posted orange danger stickers on the buildings at the apartment complex and said property managers neglected to fix mold problems, leaking roofs and replace air conditioning units.

Renters showed WPTV mold in their homes and other issues. They said they don't feel safe living there, but can't afford to move.

A judge could order the property managers to make changes.
