Inspectors head back to troubled Perry apartments

CIty of Perry inspectors today will return to the Crossroads Apartments, which faced a shutdown earlier this year due to alleged health and safety problems.

Fire Chief Joel Gray said fire inspectors and building inspectors are scheduled to view the complex at 2 p.m.

He said, as far has he knows, "Nothing has been complied with in the past 130-plus days" -- since the last visit by inspectors in April.

He would not comment on what action, if any, the city might take if inspectors find deficiencies there. He referred questions to Perry City Attorney David Walker, who could not be reached for comment.

The complex is located at 319 General Courtney Hodges Blvd.

In February, the city tried to shut it down and evict the people living there due to alleged safety deficiencies,including electrical problems.

But a judge ruled people could stay until repairs were made.

Earlier this year, the Crossroads housed 16 families. The complex is a former motel and is still legally listed as a hotel rather than apartments.
