HUD to inspect Towne Gardens


BUFFALO, NY - Towne Gardens will soon be getting an inspection by the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development.

The apartments weren't scheduled to be inspected until 2016 but Senator Chuck Schumer urged HUD to move up that process due to deplorable living conditions.

Complaints at the complex stem back years and include things like mold, leaking roofs, not enough heat and sewage back-ups.
