The building’s been condemned since the end of June, when residents were only given just 48 hours’ notice to evacuate.
The new report from the city delivered to a Newport News judge on Monday shows the elevator inspection has still not been scheduled. The landlord’s attorney told 10 On Your Side last week that they were still waiting on elevator parts.
