People who depended on an affordable housing complex in Detroit are told they need to find another place to live. Residents of Park Avenue House have been given 30 days to get out.
One tenant paid rent on Thursday $880.00 and was told on Saturday they were being evicted.
About 180 people, many of them low income living at the Park Avenue House now have to find a new place to live.
Many of the residents there live on fixed income. Some are disabled and some seniors have lived there for decades. The neighbors understand, but wish they had more time.
Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan visited with the residents.
“This is totally inexcusable behavior and it’s not something we’re going to accept in our city.” Duggan Said
Mayor Duggan says he reached out to the building owner.
