Crescent Halls residents had to endure another frustrating maintenance problem last week.
Because it was a sewage backup, it was a particularly nasty incident; because it was dealt with promptly, it might be considered less worrisome than some other problems.
Crescent Halls is Charlottesville’s public housing complex for the elderly and people with disabilities. A number of maintenance issues have plagued residents recently, most especially the failure of air conditioning during extremely hot weather. For the elderly and people with health problems, overheating is particularly dangerous.
