ATLANTA -- Residents of a low income high rise apartment building near the Georgia are finally getting relief from the heat.
Residents at the Friendship Towers on Northside Drive had been told that their air conditioning wouldn't be fixed until May or early June. However, the facility's management company was able to secure a temporary unit on Thursday.
Workers have begun the unit's installation, but residents say it's just the latest chapter in a frustrating and potentially dangerous saga.
David Perkins is wheelchair bound and disabled. Like many residents of the facility, he lives on Social Security payments of less than $1,000 a month. He said this week's air conditioning problems are nothing new.
