Mayor visits Westvale Manor

April 20, 2016
Anderson Mayor Thomas Broderick Jr. said the conditions at Westvale Manor were not as bad as he expected following a visit to the apartment complex on Tuesday.
     City officials joined Charles Weatherly Jr., executive director of the Anderson Housing Authority (AHA), at Westvale Manor, which is the subject of a federal class-action lawsuit filed April 11.
     The Fair Housing Center of Central Indiana and two tenants against the government-subsidized complex cited sexual harassment, racial discrimination and health problems related to conditions that the management failed to address.
     Among the common complaints, according to the lawsuit: Water leaks, mold, pests and inadequate maintenance of the apartments.
