Retirement Community Evacuates for Repairs

Hundreds of elderly Bowling Green residents are back home after being displaced on Aug. 14 because of the heat.

According to a newsletter from The Bowling Green Towers, electricity to the building was shut off for much of the day so work could be done on the electric box in the basement.

In the newsletter, property manager Jennifer Mitchell told residents there was a problem with the air-conditioning.

She said one of the chillers was blowing fuses and repairs would soon be completed.

It was up to residents to find a place to go between the hours of 7 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Residents we spoke to said they were not allowed to speak on camera.

    IF TENANTS WERE "NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK ON CAMERA", THEN IT SOUNDS LIKE TO ME THAT NEEDS TO BE INVESTIGATED. JUST WHO IS IN CHARGE OF TELLING THEM THEY CANNOT SPEAK??
