NYC Continues to Wrestle with Mold Outbreak Issues in Older Housing Units
The mold and fungus menace is back in NYC, although it never truly left in the first place. Houses that are past a certain age and no longer in their best condition are showing signs of mold development that threaten the health and safety of the buildings’ inhabitants.
Judge Issues New Orders
In the latest development on this front, a federal judge has deplored NYCHA’s inability to remove toxic mold that infests so many of the aging housing buildings in the surrounding area, and ordered a specially appointed expert to enforce a two year old pact that had been created to address the problem.
Fixed Time Frame
The case of an outside monitor being brought in is being viewed as a necessity, keeping in mind the seriousness of the problem and the danger it presents to the health of the general public. Simple mold cases are to be remediated in seven days, while the more serious cases are given a fifteen-day window to be resolved.
The Blame Game
The NYCHA is being censured for an apparent show of indifference towards the problem, which is believed to be the main cause of the problem growing to such vast proportions in the first place. Of note, no top NYCHA official showed up for the court hearing.
