LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Mold and fungus are sprouting from the walls at one apartment complex in Old Louisville.
One resident of the Reeser Court Apartments said she has had enough.
New Directions Housing Corporation is the property manager of the apartments. They were out on the property on Friday doing maintenance, but resident Rus'Shon Weakley said she's convinced they were only out there because she had contacted several news agencies around town.
"It's gotten worse every time it rains, the mold gets worse back there," Weakley said as contractors worked on the back hallway of building 40 at Reeser.
"The only reason they came out today is because I emailed every news station in Louisville," Weakley said.
Weakley explained that for the 11 years she has lived there, mold has always been an issue.
"It's repugnant," Weakley said. "You can smell it throughout the whole building."
In May, she said things started going further downhill for the complex. Rain, she said, is the main culprit behind the growing mold.
