TULSA, Okla. — Bed bugs, sewage leaks, and no heat or hot water for some residents at Chateau 68, and these are just some of the issues plaguing a south Tulsa apartment complex.
“No woman or kid or family should have to go through this,” Christy Guilory said.
For almost six months, and after multiple phone calls, city counselor Jeannie Cue finally made some time to talk with me today. She says things need to change.
“As far as resources with the city, and from the city counselor, there is none,” Cue said.
Cue represents district 2 and the residents of Chateau 68. She says the city’s hands are tied and the city can’t fine the owners of the complex, because they live out of state.
“Something has to be done," Cue said. "I plan on having a meeting with the people who are in the power to help me make policy decisions that can do something about this.”
Cue says she’ll be working with state representatives who can help the residents.
She also says residents are encouraged to report their issues and complaints to the city health department.
As for the owners, they said they'll continue to have contractors making repairs.
