BROOKLYN - More than two dozen tenants living without heat at 721 Van Siclen Ave. received some help yesterday after a report on their condition aired on News 12 Brooklyn.
City Councilman Charles Barron was able to get the Department of Housing Preservation and Development to provide the tenants with heating oil. He insisted that changes need to be made with the buildings management.
A similar scenario played out after a previous News 12 report that aired in January.
Management told News 12 Brooklyn that money generated from maintenance fees and rent does not cover all the costs of the building.
Barron says he will meet with tenants and city agencies to finally put the issue to rest.
